A traditional Christmas card for this weeks Christmas challenge

Good morning all

It's time for a new challenge over at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges

and this week it's our once a month

Christmas Challenge

It's our way of giving you encouragement to get ahead on your Christmas cards for this year
 before the panic sets in!!

My card this week is very much a traditional style
a lovely Sheena Douglass stamp from the Little bit Festive range called Victorian Lady

I coloured her with my colourtint pencils because I thought the muted tones were perfect for this style of image.  - except for the red - which is a Derwent inktense pencil!!

The poinsettias and ivy are are also Sheena Douglass A little bit festive perfect partners
coloured with Spectrum Noir aqua tints (now discontinued) and Sparkle pens

Here's what I did....

Image and sentiment- Victorian lady - Sheena Douglass a little bit sketchy
watercolour card - Canston
coloured with SpectrumNoir colourtint pencils and red derwnt inktense pencil
Papers - Anna Griffin ( old forgotten the name range!)
Card - black and kraft card from Crafter's Companion
Poinsettia and ivy die - Sheena Douglass perfect partners
Coloured with SN aquatints and sparkle pens
Shaped with Heartfelt Creations flower mould
Sparklers - hobby house
