Today sees my first contribution as a member of the Design Team over at THE CRAFTY PAD. I am so pleased to be joining them. We are sponsored this week by both the super CRAFTY RIBBONS and LETRASET. The prizes on offer are a gorgeous box of ribbons (just yummy) and a set of 5 Promarkers in Winter themed colours. But...you'll have to pop over to the challenge blog for a peek at these great prizes and enter the challenge for a chance to win them.

The Design Team all worked with the lovely Crafty Pad image Holly and Bauble which you can purchase HERE. The challenge is to use at least one circle and 2 ribbons.

For my card, as there aren't rules to say I have to use my Promarkers or anything, I chose to colour it digitally in Photoshop. I made my own backing paper by isolating the bauble and reducing it in size to make a regular pattern and then used a Martha Stewart punch around the edges. The plain red paper is some I've had in my stash for years. Edges were inked with distress ink, Fired Brick and then I added some lace, ribbons and a charm.

I will enter into the following challenges:
CATCH THE BUG - Anything goes
PILE IT ON - Animals
CRAFT YOUR PASSION - Anything goes
