GD card for Creative Craft World...

My lovely friend Oona aka Choccy asked me to be a GD for Creative Craft World and I jumped at the chance. The theme this time is 'Anything but Birthdays'. I thought I'd make a Christmas/Winter card and used a fab image from the challenge sponsor Robyn's Fettish. I love the simplicity of the image, think it lends itself to paper piecing but I have coloured it this time.

I have teamed the image (available to purchase here) with some of my all time fave paper from the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses pad, it really is too gorgeous to use but I forced myself as it goes with the image so well I think. The panel on the left is embossed and lightly sanded Coredinations Whitewash cardstock...

Big thank you to Oona for asking me to join the Creative Craft World team for this challenge. Please do pop over and see the DT work and join in with the challenge.

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous Sarah. A lovely simple image that lets my imagination think of all the cold winters and warming hot cocoa from when I was a child. There were 3 of us and we always had a row of dripping wet mittens hanging over the coal fire to dry. Long before you were even thought of lol xxx
