Together At Christmas

Hi All
Today's card is for the last challenge of the year at Cardz For Galz, and we would like to see your girly 'Christmas' cards.
I have used my new Stampin Up embossing folder to create some texture behind my decoupaged cute couple. The card was finished with a stamped sentiment. I love the fresh colours of this card, and think it makes a nice change from the traditional red and green cards.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Christmas, and would love you to join in the last challenge of the year.
Thanks for stopping by, and please comeback soon.
Big Christmas hugs.
Sharon xx

Thank you for popping by. Todays creation is ready for the new challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty, where this week we would like to see you 'Use Something From Your Stash'. We have two sponsors this time,  Inky Impressions and Paper Creator.
I was given a Paper Creator image to play with, which came pre-coloured. I have simply decoupaged him up to give some depth, and then used glossy accents to give his glasses a more realistic look - only problem is, I used crackle glaze by mistake, so he looks like he has broken his glasses - dooohhhh. The ruler down the side of the card is some washi tape from my crafty stash, and the sentiment is a retired stamp from Stampin Up.
