Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Colour Me Happy

Can you believe its the 1st April already?  Well, first of the month means its time for a new challenge at Sparkes Christmas challenges blog.  Our challenge for this month is:


We want to see you favourite colour combinations on your Christmas cards for this challenge - for me it has to be traditional colors - Red, Green and White.

There are two fab prizes for or lucky winners from this challenge:

Joanna Sheen has a £10 voucher to spend in her shop

and from Di's Digital Downloads, 4 digi images

The image I've used is from Bugaboo and I've coloured it with pro markers and the papers are from a Christmas Back to Basics pad from Dovecraft.  The Happy Christmas was done with my Dymo label-tape thingy and the poinsettia die cut is from Marianne's - as are the icicles.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Anything goes
Mark's Finest Papers - Make a square card
Crafty Ann's - Christmas in March
Jingle Belles - Hybrid holiday/use a digi
Crafty Purple Frog - Anything goes

Thanks for looking,
