Eclectic Ellapu December: Twelve Days Of Christmas

PS: This was supposed to go live yesterday but I completely forgot to schedule it... major ooooops! Sorry about that.

Hello December! Can you believe it?! This really is the last month of the year! However, it's business as usual over at Eclectic Ellapu... with a twist. Instead of our usual month long challenge, we're taking it to TWO whole months!

As always the 2 teams - Pinks and Purples - are playing together, but in their respective sandpits. The Pinkies' theme is "Twelve Days Of Christmas"" and the Purplies are doing "Cards to Die For".

Here's my card. It features the tree from the Turtle Dove A5 sheet. I stamped it directly on some cream card with VersaFine Onyx Black and coloured it wth Faber-Castell Polychromos. To finish, I tied some twine ... that's me keeping things simple! Hah! :)

Here's a closer look . I added a few globs and blobs of Mint Liquid Pearls around the tree and a few red bling too. Finally, some Clear Wink of Stella on the pears and bird and Glossy Accent on the star to complete the tree trimming session.

Now it's your turn to create and link up your labour of love over at the Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Blog. Remember, we have 2 concurrent challenges: "Twelve Days Of Christmas" for the Pink Team and "Cards To Die For" for the Purple Team. You can enter one or both challenges as many times as you wish, but make sure you link up your projects by 11:59pm UK on 31 January 2016. Yep - that's right. You have TWO whole months to play along.

Thank you for stopping by today. Here's to a fabulous day!
