Guest Designer card
Firstly a very HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY to all my fellow Aussies. I know it will be a wet one for many and a lot of outdoor events have had to be cancelled but I am sure there will still be lots of barbies and good fun happening on this holiday. We have such a country of contrasts - bushfires and extreme heat on the west side and flooding on the east side right now but it is still a great country to live in.
As I was chosen as the winner of the Merry Monday #2 challenge, Lesley asked me to be guest designer for this week - Merry Monday Challenge #4. It is always a thrill to win something especially when there are lots of other entries! Sorry Lesley, I am late at putting this up to show.
I hope lots can join in and enter this week - I am so happy that I have made such a head start on my Christmas cards! This way, I can take more time over my cards and get more enjoyment out of making them.
This is the card I made up. The image is from JustRite Stampers and I have embossed it using Stampin' Up! Early Espresso and Versamark inks before colouring it in with Copics and using Sparkly Fluff on the roof and tiny rhinestones for the berries.
Might be easier here if I just list what I used.
