Moving Along With The Times 'Christmas Crackers' Challenge

Good morning everyone, well it isn't long now until the big day. Are you all flat out shopping, wrapping and generally Christmasing lol.

This week at Moving Along With The Times Judith challenged us to 'Christmas Crackers' no we don't want to see you all make your own Christmas crackers we want to see you funny cards.

I used an image from Bugaboo as I love their funny ones and made this card for my aunt and uncle who love a giggle. I kept it clean and simple so that that the focus was on the image and sentiment. I added glitter to all the white trim edges and glossy accents to her spectacles. 

6" Scalloped Card Blank - Boyes
Card Stock - Bazzill
Medium - Letraset
Gloss - Ranger
Glitter - Baker Ross

Promarkers Used:-
Reds - Burgundy, Crimson, Berry Red & Red
Greys - Cool Grey 5, 4, 3, 2 & 1
Skin - Oatmeal, Satin & Blush

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
A & T Emerald Fairies - Christmas 
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
LEJ Designs - Sentimental
Cupcake Crafts - Merry Christmas

Thanks for stopping by and keep warm on these freezing cold days.
