James with purple cracker

Hi – this is my second post today and I’m back with another Christmas card.  This card is for one of my granddaughters, although I haven’t decided which one yet.  I love lilac and purple – and they do too, but maybe not as much as they love pink!!   As one of my granddaughters is 6 and the other 7 I thought this image of James, with his big cracker, would appeal to them.    I’ve used several purple design papers and I added a snowflake corner, glittered stars, ribbon and a star charm.   I added Shabby white frantage to the edge of the circle and chunky white frantage over the image.


What I used –

Image – James – Christmas Cracker – from LOTV – coloured with Promarkers     Sentiment also by LOTV

Papers from Nitwits

Dies – snowflake corner from Memory Box, stars from Whiff of Joy.

Ribbon from my stash

Star charm and pearls from the Ribbon Girl


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges –
