Fab'n'Funky Challenge DT Card

Hi everyone,
I hope you're having a good week so far.
We're still in the grips of a cold front that doesn't seem to be shifting anytime soon.
It's been a long time since we've had such a cold, snowy winter as this one.

I'm hosting this week at Fab'n'Funky and our lovely Judith had the brilliant idea to have a Christmas challenge once a help avoid the stress at Christmas and have all our cards ready. I was so on board with this theme because I was really scrambling last year.

We have the fabulous Delicious Doodles sponsoring this week.
  I've used Four Calling Birds and went with non-traditional colours.  
I'm so sick of all the snow and am really in need of a tropical vacation.....can you tell.


Image coloured with Copics.
Sentiments are cut from Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas 8x8 pad
Tim Holtz Pine Tree and Tattered Pinecone Dies used
Fran-tage Shabby Pink Embossing enamel
Silk ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store

 I would like to enter the following challenges:

Delicious Doodles Challenge #72 - must use ribbon 
The Rubber Buggy Challenge  #15 - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for stopping by. We'd love it if you played along with us this week at Fab'n'Funky and please drop by to see the wonderful creations made by my talented team mates.

Fabulous card Pat, love the colours you have used on this beautiful image and great design. We haven't had any snow to speak of here just a few flurries which quickly melted. Enjoy your day.

Wow!!! pat this is so gorgeous, I adore the image and your fantastic colouring and layout. I spotted you over on Make it Monday and came for a closer look and I am so glad that I did.


Heather said...

It is definitely a good idea to work on Christmas cards throughout the year (says the woman on 2 Christmas challenge design teams!) I had all my Christmas cards finished before December this year and that was awesome! Your card definitely does have a tropical feel to it, but the colors still work well for Christmas. Love your trees in the background. Thanks for playing with CHNC2.
