A few more challenges

I really enjoyed making this card! I was chatting to my friend Ikki on the phone whilst doing some of it... maybe she gave me inspiration, but I'm quite pleased with the outcome!
I was going to enter this for the One Stop Craft's challenge of 'recycled' as the deep red ribbon came from a Christmas gift, but I seem to be a tad too late for that one so I thought that the 'bonnet' or 'boots' would make it eligible for their current challenge of 'Something beginning with B'!
The other challenges for this card are
Crafty Calendar - Keeping Warm
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Stamp Something - Something New (the daisy ribbon from my Cuddly Buddly Secret Santa)
Stampavie & More - Happy New Year
The Pink Elephant - It's your choice
Three Clovers - Celebration
Pile it on - Anything Digital ( the papers from Cuddly Buddly)
It isn't often that I feel totally satisfied with a completed card, but I kinda like this one!


  1. Fantastic card Chrissie. I really love the warm, rich colours and that fabby image. Such a beautiful choice of papers too. Here's wishing you and yours all the best for 2010 (sorry I've been out of touch for a while). Thanks for joining the One Stop Craft Challenge.
