Scrappers Delights - Midway (Late post eek)

Hi everyone, 

WOW Where is December going! 10th already! Ok last Wednesday started a new challenge over at Scrappers Delights and although my card was ready in time I forgot to schedule my blog post! And on that note I have some sad news. This is actually my last post as a DT Member for Scrapper's Delights. My workload is just too much at the moment and I have to admit defeat in keeping up with everything so I am afraid my DT commitments came in the firing line. I will continue to support Janice and her wonderful digi stamps but at the moment I need to take a step back from the DT. I would like to thank Janice and Angelique for giving me the chance to be part of this fantastic team.

So a reminder there is a fab tag/ornament challenge going on over on the facebook group right now through till 30th December. 

And as for the current challege the theme is Anything Goes with the twist non-traditional Christmas colours. 

My DT Card:

Shapes: All cutfiles from the Silhouette store cut on the Cameo 

The image is coloured with Copics. 

This beautiful 3d bow is a cutfile from the Silhouette store Design ID #69559 

Pop over to the Scrappers Delight challenge blog now to check out the other DT cards.
