Fancy folds over at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all, 

Hope the sun is shining where you are. We had a lovely bright day here yesterday - the jury's out on what's happening today though!   

When I saw the theme for this weeks challenge over at The Paper Shelter - and the gorgeous new release digis we've had lately I decided to take the opportunity to make a Christmas card with this gorgeous image called The Turkey is ready it's available Here from The Paper Shelter

I love this image - it's so vintagey (is that a word) and straight away I could just see her on a lovely round easel card with Christmas embellies!  (I have a confession - I'm back on the round easel cards again - I find it hard to fight this addiction lol)

As always there is a fab prize on offer

The gift voucher

This is what I did....

Coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils
