A Different Colour!



This Gift card is for:-
1. Stampin For The Weekend - challenge 26 - Lilac and Silver + a gift wallet
2. Sophsiti-cats - challenge ~ 13 - Snowflakes and Sparkles
3. A Spoonful Of sugar - challenge 80 - No Traditional Christmas Colours
4. Crafty Cardmakers - challenge # 9 - Non Traditional Colours

I have made this gift wallet for my sister, as she's saving for a laptop and asked me to give her money for Christmas this year. I'm normally a traditional girl when it comes to Christmas colours, so this was a bit slow to get started at first, but once I'd picked the colours it all fell into place.
Stampin For The Weekend gave a colour combo of Lilac and Silver which i've used, the silver is mirror board. It also had to be a gift wallet and tag, my tag is on the inside to give me something to write my message on.
Sophisti-cats theme is snowflakes and sparkles, I've layered and glittered a snowflake on the top corner and put stickles on the cuffs, boots and muff on my Lizzie image.
A Spoonful of sugar asked for non traditional Christmas colours and since I've used Lilac it fits the challenge.
Crafty cardmakers also wants us to use non traditional Christmas colours.

I have been one lucky girly today, I won second prize over at Debbi's in her Promarker giveaway.
Then I also won at Tellen's place for my sexy Santa card. It cheered me up no end after such a rubbish week with my poor boys being poorly.

Happy crafting
