Shape It Up

Hello to you all on this wet and chilly Monday, hope you're having a good start to the week.

Over the weekend I finally got round to inking up this Wild Rose Studio stamp called 'Hanging Gifts' which I coloured with Promarkers. Then I made a shaped card base with a top fold using the largest of the QuicKutz Nesting Frame 9 dies. I used smaller of the same frames to die-cut the image and also WRS 'Annabelle's Christmas' background paper and white card, which I layered up. The sentiment is one of the LOTV 'Christmas Grungy Messages' stamps and finally I used ribbon from my stash to make the bow.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Magnolia-licious challenge 'Shaped cards'
CRAFT challenge 'Christmas'
Allsorts challenge 'Ribbon and bows'
Polkadoodles challenge 'Christmas is coming'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'All creatures great and small' (my 2nd entry)
Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge 'Getting ready for christmas' (my 2nd entry)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge 'Ribbon' (my 2nd entry)
Fashionable Stamping challenge ' Make a card'
CHNC challenge extra 'Christmas anything goes'

Thanks for taking the time to pop by and a big thank you for any comments you leave as they are really appreciated.
