Delightful Thursday


It's time for another challenge on the Digital Delights Challenge Blog.  Here is my last card for the year:


I used Nutcracker Kiddles which is available here,  he is one of my favourite images and I use him every year.  He was coloured with Copics and I used Dienamics Pierced Oval Stax to cut him out and matted him on Spellbinders Lacy Ovals.  The Noel is Clearly Besotted, I layered three for more depth.  I think the border is Memory Box and I used Centrura Pearl for the card base.


Thank you so much for all your support and kind wishes this year.  I wish you all the most loveliest of Christmas festivities and a Happy and Peaceful New Year.
