A NEW CHALLENGE AT JACKSON'S DIGITAL EXPRESSIONS

As always, the theme for the challenge (#34)  is Anything Goes, and this time the sponsor is Digi Darla.

For your inspiration, I have made a card with the sponsor's image, called Front Door, which I have made into a Christmas Card: 
I coloured the image using alcohol markers and a white gel pen:  


and made a hand bead embroidery wreath using sew on gems, seed beads and a satin ribbon:


To make up my card I used the following:

white CS card base
Christmas theme DP
red/green shiny cord
three wooden (red beads)

I chose not to add a sentiment as I think the sentiment contained in the DP is just perfect for the theme of my card.

THIS IS THE LINK to the challenge over at Jackson's Digital Expressions ... once you are there you will be able to see my fellow DTeamies' creations to inspire you to enter ... there are fabulous prizes to be won!

I look forward to seeing YOUR entry!
