Christmas Bauble

I am still busy making Christmas cards. At some point I really should sit down and start addressing my cards and sending them out. This card I made using a cute image from Sassy Cheryl (here) called Christmas Bauble Trouble.

My husband has been trying to teach me a bit about photography and the latest results are the pictures below. I must say, I can create a card no problem, but trying to understand all the functions on my camera is not easy. I just want to push a button and have a pretty picture. Unfortunately it doesn't seem that easy. I hope he is patient with me. I will eventually get it.

This card was inspired by a fabulous sketch from Cardabilities.

Inspiration also came from the latest challenge over at the Little Red Wagon blog. There Joanne's challenge is to create a card in which an element or embellishment extends off the edge of the card.

For my card I used Simple Stories December Documented.

The inside is decorated with a couple of tags from Simple Stories.

The image is coloured with Copic markers.

I am submitting my card for the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon: #213 Off the Edge
Cardabilities: Sketch # 87
Sassy Cheryl: # 193 Winter/Cold Weather

Image: Sassy Cheryl Christmas Bauble Trouble
Paper: Simple Stories December Documented, Snap Christmas
MME Twine "All is Bright"
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
