My Time to Craft Challenge - Contemporary Christmas

This is a challenge for all crafters out there who are still making their Christmas cards, why not join us this week at My Time to Craft where the theme is Contemporary Christmas!
And even if you have already made all your cards, there is always next year's cards to think of he he!!
So for my card I decided to use a pink colour scheme and teamed it up with green as I love this colour combo. I love bright cards and apparently it's set to be the trend for 2009 so I'm well ahead lol!!
My stamped image is 'Joyous' from the Winter Elves collection from Pollycraft, I have used her lots of times for my Christmas cards this year, but I've also made a birthday card with her which I will hopefully get to show you soon time permitting! I have coloured her with Distress Inks.
The papers are freebies from Complete Cardmaking Mag, I've been using these papers a lot, I'm really pleased with them. Making Cards is from the makers of Simply Cards and Papercrafts and Papercraft Essentials, you can usually get it from WH Smiths although I subscribe.
The snowflakes, and sentiments are all from the Christmas box which was a TSV from QVC by Brenda Pinnick, I've had the box for 2 Christmas' now and there is still so much left!!
Can I also take this opportunity to thank you all for the fantastic response we've had to the Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog so far! You will have to come back later for something exciting to celebrate the launch!!
Love Becky xx
