Another Multiple Challenge!!


I seem to be on a roll with combining challenges today, here's my second card this morning which incorporates several challenges. I began with the sketch from 365 Cards, with which I took a slight liberty, changing the shape of the central element, the theme of Christmas is from Penny Black, whose gorgeous image this is. The colours (ruby, cream and gold) are the choice of Colour Create Challenge and the Secret Crafter has a subject entitled Flights of Fancy where there must be wings on the card. It certainly would be a flight of fancy for a chicken wouldn't it!
I enjoyed doing this one, but my husband is shouting to remind me that we're off to watch cricket in 30 minutes and I'm not dressed yet! Ooops!
