Chirstmas card for challenges and then to a good cause

Hello bloggers,

Hope all is well in your creative world...

Here is a simple card I made at the weekend with my new Inkadinkado clear stamp. It is rather childish compared to the gems that you lovely ladies produce out there. But I have an excuse - since I make cards to donate I need volumes, hence cannot spend too much time on one card. Sounds convincing, doesn't it? So that is my answer for not working so hard on my cards. Lol!

The gemstones that I have used are actually tiny "bindis" - the stuff that Indian ladies wear on their forehead.

I have got permission from my younger one's school to host a charity card sale on this coming Thursday and Friday - so am working away. Happily for sure!!!

Am entering this card in the following challenges as well:

www.thepaperplayers.blogspot.com/ - anything goes

www.ellephantasticchallenges.blogspot.com/ - blue

www.fabnfunkychallenges.blogspot.com/ - clean and simple

www.michelle-pinkpaperparadise.blogspot.com/ - not a challenge but a no - pressure inspirational weekly linky party.

Hello Monica. This is absolutely beautiful. Love the design and the colour. Dont you put yourself down, we dont all have stacks of money to spend. You make fabulous cards and you are such a warm-hearted and kind lady to donate them all to charity. Good for you sweetie.
Happy crafting.
With love, Sandra xx

Monica, shame on you for thinking this is childish and being so down on yourself! IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I love everything about it. The snowflakes are so pretty with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and oh, that color! You know that I LOVE that for sure. I think it's gorgeous!!!!! Can't wait to see more.

Hi Monica

Wow, nothing childish about this card at all! Very striking. Love the blue and white colour combo. It all co-ordinates so well the way that the ribbon has dots just like the embossing.

Lovely layout too.

Thanks for linking up to Make It Monday this week.
