Funky Hand DT card & Docrafts Daily Sketch

Good afternoon bloggers and a special welcome to my new followers, its great to have you here!

I am just stopping by today to share with you my latest DT creation for the Funky Hand challenge blog, Get Funky!
The theme this month is to make a kids Christams card and I just love the new Oh Come All Ye Crafters digi stamp download with this cute little santa in it. There are also 3 other images, you can see them and buy it here. The star backing paper is the funky freebie for this month that Anice provided, so that even if you dont own anything from Funky Hand yet then you can still take part in the challenge and be in with the chance to win a free download! :)

Here is the card blurb:
The Santa image was coloured in using promarkers, the present is an old Quickutz die and the ribbon and sentiment are from my HUGE Xmas craft stash! The green backing paper is from the Make A List download, part of the series of 8 in the new Oh Come All Ye Crafters range.

I have not added any extra embellishments to the card yet as I thought with so many patterns and layers on there already it could become a bit cluttered. I might walk away and leave it for a few days then come back to it and see what I think, sometimes it is just best not to over think it and know when to walk away! ;)


The layout for this card was inspired by today's free sketch download in the Docrafts Creativity Club, sorry but I wont be sharing the actual sketch here as then it wouldnt be very exclusive, would it! ;)
I loved all the layers of this sketch and as I am not good at designing a card with some many elements myself it was great to have this helping hand to start me off. The only thing is that then there was no stopping me so I added the ribbon strip and sentiment circle! To download the exclusive club members sketch pop here but be quick as there will be a new sketch uploaded tomorrow!
I hope you like todays card, dont forget my blog candy is still on and continuing until I reach 100 followers, the prize is a 6 month membership to the Docrafts Creativity Club, what a nice early christmas present that would make! Bye for now, Ni. x
