Cute Card Thursday 'Open Theme'
As this is the last challenge at Cute Card Thursday until Jan 8th there is an open theme this week, you can enter a card for any occasion! I have used one of the gorgeous Pollycraft elves (thanks Shary). The flower punches are from Stampin Up and the swirls are a Quickutz die. I am using my flower punches a lot at the moment and it makes matching colours much easier than with bought flowers. I have just managed to order 2 EK Success retro flower punches, as I am getting some money for Xmas, I just hope I am allowed to use them beforehand - well I will have to check they work ok, won't I!!Supplies
Stamps: Pollycraft - Winter Elves, Honesty, Basic Grey - Swirl (Green paper)
Tools: Pro Markers, Glossy Accents, Sakura Clear Stardust Pen, Quickutz Swirls, Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug Vintage Corners, Stampin Up Flower Punches, Pearls, Pearls
DP: Basic Grey
