I’ve chosen to use one of their pre-coloured images today from the Twiggy & Toots Collection and make this Christmas Card.

P1050687

Isn’t this image adorable? And the image has a heart ornament and little hearts on her dress. Just perfect for this challenge. I was originally planning to colour this image but ran out of time so I was glad it comes with a pre-coloured in the fabulous collection along with lots of other wonderful images, sentiments, templates, etc.

My image was printed onto X-Press It Blending Card and cut out using the Large Classic & Scallop Square Nestabilities.

Here’s a closer look at the image.

It’s time for a new challenge at Fussy & Fancy Challenges and this time the challenge is…..

Birthdays’.

Our sponsors for this challenge are Sweet Lilac Flowers & Sherri Baldy - My Besties.

We were provided with some images from Sherri Baldy and this was the one I was given to use. Now I’m not sure if I’ve made it fit the ‘Birthday’ theme too well but I’ve looked at the image as playing with a new Birthday present (the doll).
