Hope you're all keeping warm, dry and safe in this horrible weather! The wind on Thursday night was unbelievable. The bus ride home was the scariest one in my life, with bad flooding, gale force winds, snow and ice.....it was a horrible experience and I was so glad to get home into a nice cosy house and a hot bath my Mum had ran for me! Awwww!!

So here is what I made! It's a card my friend Karen has asked for, so I hope she likes it!
I used a Craftwork Cards Elegant Square white card blank and covered the base with matt and layered red and green card. I scored a diagonal line on the front of the card and then using 1/2 of another elegant square card blank, I attached it to the bottom scored area on the main card,.
I covered the front with the same shade of red card and a square of patterned green, red and white Christmas paper (from a DCWV pack I think).
I cut a smaller piece of green card and a piece of red and white Christmas paper from a Fizzy Moon paper pack and matt and layered this on the left hand side of the card.
I then used a scallop punch and cut out 2 scallops on green card and attached these to the front of the card using double sided sticky tape. I built up a Fizzy Moon pyramage image and attached this in the centre. I decorated the green scallops with a silver peel off borders and red adhesive stones.
I then decorated the base of the card with a piece of green card (edged with a white ink pad), with a sentiment attached on the top. This was attached with 3D foam. To finish it off, I used green adhesive gems and red Stickles on various areas of the card.
Well I hope you like it. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.
Look forward to seeing what you've made for the challenge!
Good luck and take care!
