Joyfold Christmas Card

I haven't made one of these cards for a while - even though they are relatively simple to put together.



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Crafty Gals Corner - Fancy Fold
http://craftygalscornerchallenges.blogspot.co.nz/2017/09/challenge-141-fancy-fold.html

I have used green cardstock for the base.  The papers are both from a christmas paper pad by Graphic 45.  The image is from Lia Stamps and is coloured with copic markers.  I added a tree sticker and a glitter foam tree embellishment.

On Your Birthday

I have had a large part of today with no internet nor cellphone coverage.  Not sure what the issue was but it was a real nuisance not having either!  Amazing how much we rely on technology!  It is now well past my bedtime but I'm trying to get some cards uploaded before the challenge expires!



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
The Paper Shelter - Make It Digital
http://thepapershelter.blogspot.co.nz/2017/09/challenge-310-make-it-digital.html

I used a digital paper and a digital pre-coloured image from The Paper Shelter.  I added a flower embellishment and a sentiment from a themed paper pack.  The card blank is also from that paper pack.

Believe In Yourself

I originally intended to enter this card in the challenge at Brown Sugar but realised it had already closed by the time that I went to post it!  I am so disorganised at the moment.

 
I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Catch The Bug - September BINGO (Gem + Red + Brad)
 
 I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps.  I popped the sentiment up with pop dots.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added some red gems and a star shaped brad.

The paper I have used is from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The flower image and leaf image are from Digi Stamps 4 Joy.  I printed out the flower image in three different sizes and then fussy cut them, added pop dots and layered them over each other and then over the leaf image.  Colouring is with copic markers.  Matting is pearlescent paper.  I also added some braid trim.
