A Barkley card

Hi everyone

Just wanted to share a Christmas card I've made this afternoon.
I've used the seriously cute Barkley for this one...
I've coloured using Copics and am particularly pleased with how his hat turned out. Here's a closer look...

I've made an A6 card for a change. I wanted to have two different backing papers but didn't want an obvious join so I cut two pieces together, the same size as the whole background. I then cut it in half with a pinking blade and put the pieces together like a jigsaw. I've got another set ready to use on another card...

I finished off with a die cut poinsettia, a hand tied bow, a sentiment and used some double sided tape to add glitter to the corners. I've raised the image on foam pads.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for visiting. I'm going to attempt to make a vindaloo now so hopefully I'll see you again soon...

Happy crafting
Helen xx
