Emily's Christmas Card and a mini image draw




Hello all

As a special little treat everyone whom comments on this post today will be entered into a draw to win a stamped image of my new birthday stamps.
I decided to follow Jacqui's tutorial on the WOJ inspirational blog and make an easel card. The image is one of my new ones and is coloured in using distressed inks. The papers are new and the packaging is upstairs so will update you on that later.
The card is for Emily my really beautiful neice whom was born in October.
I hope you like.

Your card for a child is gorgeous.

I love the style you have used. The lovely, well coloured, image and your brilliant backing papers.

Everything goes together wonderfully. You must be really pleased with the finished result - I know I would be!!

Thank you for playing along with Allsorts this week.

Love Jules xx
