A Christmas break

Hello my crafty buddies, I have a Birthday card to share today as I was itching to use a different colour scheme if I am honest!!


To start with I dug out my Boho Chic pad and made the layout using 

Sketch Saturday #223

I then coloured little Pip (mine was a digi but you can get her in rubber now here) with Promarkers to match the pretty papers. I actually used different colour recipe for her face and was really pleased with the result, even though she did seem a bit "Tangoed" at first. (For my overseas friends...you won't have a clue what I am on about but it, essentially, means orange !!).

I am entering these challenges

Sketch Saturday Week #338 - Pick any Sketch
Sister Act #85 - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create #100 - Anything Goes (calendar twist)
That Craft Place - Anything Goes

That's me for now, if I don't get a chance before I shall see you on Thursday with a DT card, but for now have a good week xx

She is so cute Sarah, not at all 'Tangoed'. It nice to see a card which does not feature Christmas image, she is a zesty delight.

Such a cutie Sarah and so good to see a card that isn't Christmas! I thought I had finished my cards but I am shy of a few OLs for the postbox. Why do I always forget that it costs to make thicker cards!!!!! x

Hello Sarah I thought tangoed referred to tangerine, so I understood orange.When my daughter studied abroad in Manchester she would share the slang...it's brilliant. thanks for sharing this darling little card and thanks for the visit.
