Good Morning,

We have a new challenge over at As You Like It and for this fortnight the theme is to showcase a project using either single or multiple layers (and don't forget to tell us why please or you won't be eligible for the prize or Top 3).

I think single layer cards can look so good, but I just can't do it! I do like pretty patterned papers and when I've tried single layers I always feel as though I have something missing so I stick with more than one. 

The sponsor for this challenge is

who have kindly provided us with images to work with.  

My card shows Polkadoodles Cute Robins with Stockings digi image which I've coloured with copics to match the First Edition paper.  I've added fun flock to their pom poms, glitter on their hats and liquid pearls on the mistletoe berries.  I found it difficult to know how to decorate this card because the image seemed quite busy so I've kept it fairly simple with some velvet ribbon and pearls.  I've also used mini scalloped dies from My Favorite Things. This is my third christmas card of the week so I'm certainly getting on with them.

I hope you can join us and if you could pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Colour Crazy Challenge wk 8 - Anything Goes
Digi Choosday - Anything Goes

Have a good weekend and keep warm, I know I won't be going far, I think the snow must be up to 7 or 8 inches on the lawn.
