More Christmas Cards from Scraps

Morning everyone, I have two more cards created from my scrap paper box to send off to the Tracey Hanshaw for the Aussies Troops overseas.  This card I started with the blank white pre-scored card.  Next punched out four blue circles from any blue scrap paper I could find.  I then adhered them in rows with my double sided tape.  Next I printed off this wonderful digital image by Jim Harker called Little Soldier.  I have coloured him with my watercolour pencils and gold gel pen.  Finished by adding a touch of Kindy Glitz.

Now this is not my best card but I like the idea.  I will have to play a little more I think.  Once again started with the plain white pre-scored card.  Went around the edge with my fine tip black pen dotting and dashing.  Next I dug out my Octagon Spellbinders and cut five green baubles and five smaller red baubles.  Layered them up and finished the baubles with these lovely snowflakes stickers (Sticker Store).  Grabbed my fine tip black pen again and hand drew the strings attaching the baubles which you would guess by their crookedness.  :-)  Finished with so silver and white bows and a Christmas greeting sticker.
