INVENTORY CHALLENGE no. 30 - A CHRISTMAS CARD

Good day to you all,
For our 30th Inventory Challenge, Christina and I choose a Christmas theme. For my card, I inked Tilda on ornament for the first time and used Sketch Saturday No. 153 sketch! Tilda looks so cute hanging there, I had to find a way to showcase her to bring her out nicely. I colored her with copics, and added micro-pearls and glossy accent to the ornament. The big ornament is also colored with copics, I used pearls on a metal wire that I curled to follow the swirl image. I used Basic Grey Jovial paper with little ornaments,  this collection happened to be my favourite this year, I love the rich colors and the lovely design, uust as much as I love these round sentiment from Stampinack, thank you Crissy for offering them to me. The lace, ribbon and all accessories came from my stash.  I used an embossed  ornament from Stampin up set (Jolis ornements), that I simply adore cause there is a matching punch! Isn't it gorgeous?

Bon vendredi à vous toutes,
C'est le thème de Noël qui nous a inspirées pour ce 30e Inventory Challenge. J,ai choisi pour ma carte Tilda on ornament, que je colore pour la première fois. Je me suis servie du sketch de Sketch Saturday (no. 153). Il me fallait trouver quelque chose d'original pour accompagner cette mignonne Tilda, sans lui voler la vedette! Je l'ai coloriée aux copics, et la boule de Noël est décorée avec des micro-perles et du glossy accent. La grosse boule,  est aussi colorée aux copic, ses décorations sont des perles à colliers enfilées sur un fil de métal que j'ai plié pour suivre les volutes  de l'image. Le papier est de la collection Jovial de Basic grey, les cartons de mon inventaire, ainsi que le ruban et la dentelle. Le sentiment provient d'une collection de Stampinback, offerte par mon amie Christina. (merci!) La  boule de Noël en dessous provient d'un jeu de Stampin up, que j'adore, il s'accompagne d'un poinçon à la même forme.

Danielle, I love all the beads you’ve added to your card. I’ve never tried it myself. And I wonder why I don’t see more of them, as they give the cards a certain pizzazz. Too much work maybe? Do you glue them on, or do you sew them on one by one?
Your card is fabulous. Wonderful colours you’ve chosen. And I love Tilda image—you just reminded me how adorable she is. Fantastic colouration as usual. Love your take on the sketch.

Hugs,
Norma
