FOR THE ONE YOU LOVE AT CHRISTMAS
My husband and I don't normally exchange cards, so for this challenge I tried to make a card he'd really appreciate. I didn't want to overdose on sentimentality, so I searched high and low for an image he'd like. Needless to say I found Kenny K, with his gorgeous girl digis and after a big debate between digi Mrs Claus and Mistletoe - chose Mistletoe for my DT card.
Isn't she fabulous?
I paired this image with a stack of presents digi and a fantastic "Naughy or Nice" sentiment digi, both freebies I found online and lost the details for. If you happen to recognise them please let me know so I can give credit to the artists. I will be ticking "naughty" or "nice" before giving my hubby the card, I am just monitoring his behaviour. :)
I am thrilled to bits with this card. I have tried to keep it as masculine as possible, so have used simple embellishments of metal snowflake charms, silver stars and ribbons. Colouring her was a dream, I happily spent hours on her hair and her dress, and love how she turned out. I hadn't done black hair before and was a bit daunted, but think it doesn't look too bad.
I hope to see you there!
