12 Days of Christmas Card

Good day everyone,

  ****************************************************************************
If you're looking for the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog Hop post please scroll down. Thank you!

***************************************************************************

Early morning for me here but wanted to get this card on before I start the marathon of Christmas shopping today.   Off to a Christmas party tonight so have to save some energy.

I absolutely love the 12 days of Christmas series 
that Teri of Delicious Doodles created a couple of years ago.  
 This is the first time I've had the confidence to tackle these amazing images 
because I wanted to make sure I could do them justice. I hope I've succeeded. 
They work beautifully with Graphic 45 Christmas papers I think.



So far I've created 3 cards from the grouping but will have to wait until after I send out my cards to post...don't want to spoil it for anyone.

Digital image 12 Drummers can be found here
Coloured with Copics. 
 Sentiment cut from one of the sheets in the G45 pack. 
 Berries are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Creative Corner Challenges - Traditional Christmas
Digi Haven Challenge - Merry Christmas

Thanks for visiting today and your lovely comments are always appreciated.
hugs,
Pat K xx
