My Time To Craft 'Christmas In June' Challenge

Good morning people it is lovely to have you here. It has been one of those week's this week where lots has been done but I feel like nothing has been achieved! 

We are off to the circus this evening with the grandchildren and it should be really good as none of them have ever been before which really surprised me. I do think it is a shame that the real old fashioned circus has gone although for the animals I am really glad.

Anyhow this fortnight at My Time To Craft we are looking for 'Christmas In June', so you now have the chance to get ahead with all those cards that in November you are panicking about!! I went with this sort of old fashioned Christmas card, the papers have that old feel to them and the image which I adore is one that can be used in many era's. I coloured this in more traditional fashioned colours but just added a little bit of purple to mix it up. The ribbon is purple but on my screen it looks black so not sure what you are seeing, it could be the green card stock behind that is causing that.

Card Stock - Bazzill
Sentiment - Crafty Sentiments
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons

Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-
