Four challenges


I liked this week's Ismaki sketch so much that I did a second card. Thanks again Manue! I created this card also to fit with the Created by Hand challenge (which is to use Christmas and music), the Crazy Amigo challenge (to use "hands"), and Arty Girlz (to use favourite colours; I always love black and gold together).

The image is from a 1921 Good Housekeeping magazine. The music stamp is Inkadinkado, the sentiment stamp is Hero Arts and the Christmas tree stamp is from Susanne Canon's beautiful hand calligraphy over at Quietfire Design. I used the Martha Stewart Lace Doliy border punch over Swiss Dots cuttlebugged gold cardstock, and embellished the Nestabilities scalloped circle with Kaiser pearl beads.

Thanks for visiting me today. I wish you a creative week!
