Allsorts Challenge 1

Morning Everyone, Happy Tuesday!!

My post today is for the Allsorts Challenge. They are a new challenge blog, so pop on over and take a look. They have a fab prize on offer from their sponsors, Sir Stampalot.

For their first challenge the theme is "SWEETS", and here's my yummy offering:

I decided to use candy canes for the sweet element and make a Christmas card (you know we can never start too early!!).

I've used Magnolia's New Year Tilda & Candy Cane stamps and coloured them using my Copics.

The green background is vellum, and the DP to the left of Tilda is cut from some paper I had in my stash (it's amazing what you can find if you really hunt!!)

I used my Nesties to cut the squares for the matting & layering.

I've kept it quite simple, but I think Tilda look rather "sweet" sitting on her candy canes!!

Anyway, thanks for dropping by, your comments are always gratefully received.
