For challenges then for charity

Hello bloggers,

Thank you so much for your warm birthday wishes on Zeenya's birthday... what a lovely world blogland is!

I just happened to stumble upon and got inspired to take part in their latest challenge with this card.

Somehow this card looks much nicer in real life because I have used shimmery paper and the camera doesn't do enough justice to it. The circular shapes have been cut from my Cuttlebug die cuts on handmade paper and the snowflakes, holly leaves and reindeer are all from Carla craft punches. The sentiment is hand written because there wasn't enough space on the card to stamp it.

I am also going to enter this in the following challenges: - anything goes - bling and any colours you like - glitter, rhinestone, sparkle

With lots of love, Sandra xxx

Beautiful card Monica.

It's frustrating isn't it when cards are difficult to photograph.

I can tell though that this shimmery paper is gorgeous and your card looks fabulous.

Michelle :-)

Photo is fine Monica . Yes it is my experience that blogers and papercrafters are a warm hearted lot.
Love your shimmery card. A festive creation indeed.
