Colour Create Christmas Cracker

Welcome to another Colour Create Challenge! This week the colours Red Cream or White and Gold have been chosen by the lovely and talented DT Liz who just so happens to have some lovely candy available at the moment too :). Once again our we are sponsored by Michelle's Scrapbooking so pop on over and check our her wonderful store!

The picture that Liz has chosen to inspire us with is this one of the gorgeous red bedroom.

Liz's optional extra this week is use a Christmas or an Oriental Theme - the choice is yours!!

I have used a card template to create this Christmas Cracker shaped card and it can be found here at cardmaking

This lovely Christmas Paper with glitter embossing was from Making Memories and I have decided to add Edwin to the top of the cracker so not to cover my pattern paper. Edwin is colour with copics with the white parts of his hat and suit cover with clear spica pen and the buckles coloured using the gold spica pen.

I have simply added the gold ribbon to each end of the cracker and made a tag using the Stamp It "Have Yourself" stamp.

I'm also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp - Holiday Fun Challenge, the Stamp Something - Something Cute Challenge and The Shabby Tea Room Challenge - Tag You're It..
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit the other DT's as the cards this challenge are absolutely stunning!
