2 or 3 word sentiment

Morning and hello! The week has soon passed and the weekend is here again. How fast it's passing! Do you know that it's only a few months left before Christmas is here? I keep going on my Christmas cards and today is no exception.

You know that I am on four different design teams and this week the Paper Shelter is sponsoring three of them, so I am having a TPS week. The card I show today is made for the challenge over at AUD sentiments where we are having the theme of "2 or 3 word sentiment". That means YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SENTIMENT with 2 or even 3 words in it on your creation. Not that hard you know, like Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, On your birthday etc.

For the first time have I used the image called Hope. I was a bit scared of it at first as there is some fine details, but it went ok after all I must say. I managed to stay on my plan and use grey as my main colour on the image with details from red and green. I coloured with my Letraset Markers this time as well. I even managed to keep my embellishments in white and grey. Well, a tiny bit of red in the pearl string from Panduro as well, but the card needed that to pop a bit.

Sorry the pearl string looks really light here, but it's dark IRL

I have once again used an old sketch from the CLP challenge blog. The perfect library when you want sketches with many layers and details.  From time to time that is lots of fun and especially when I make Christmas cards I enjoy it. I miss this challenge.

My designer papers are from Maja design and the new winter / Christmas collection A gift from me or something like that. I picked out the green papers for this as grey/silver and green together looks smashing! My flowers are a mix from WOC and I am Roses once again. Also the little bells comes from WOC. There is also a flower "thingie" from Magnolia added to the mix. The fun border punch is from the super market and was great with all the greens on the card. A pearl maker is used for the snow flakes as well as some stickles in the "colour" picked fence. The rose ribbon is either from WOC or Ribbon girls.

Well then, sponsoring us over at AUD sentiments this week is "my" dear old Paper Shelter and I hope you will come and join us in our "2 or 3 word challenge". You have one more whole week to take part in this fun challenge. You can win a gift voucher worth $15. How great isn't that?

Love n hugs
