Creative Craft World GDT

The fab Choccy asked me if I would like to be a guest design teamie this week over on Creative Craft World's Challenge Blog.  After I'd patched her up having bitten her hand off, I said that I'd love to. (sorry Choccy, hope it's better!!) She sent me off giving me the chance to have anything Christmassy from Robyns Fetish Digi Stamps.  I love vintage style cards and chose this one called Sarah's Christmas. The image has been lightly painted with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, mat and layered with Spellbinders Oval plain and scalloped Nesties and placed on to an acetate wrap.  The card layer, SU's Christmas paper from a couple of years ago and the Acetate were all die cut together through the Calibur Machine so that all the layers were perfect.  A touch of Christmas gold ribbon and Voila!

Huge hugs to my sis-in-law for all the inspiration

Hi Jennie, love this card, the acetate is such a great idea.

By the way, there is a little something on my blog for you. You asked me for a digi sentiment, quite a while ago now, and I've been working though the requests. Your 'belated' birthday was posted this week - check out my freebie images and collect it if you like it - hope you do !!! Annette xx (http://nettyscards.blogspot.com/)
