Allsorts Challenge #698

Good morning everyone, and welcome to this week's Allsorts Challenge. This week it is my turn to host the challenge, and I have chosen the theme

*** Add A Sentiment ***

A very easy theme I hope you'll agree, so I'm looking forward to seeing lots of entries!

This week's prize has been provided by Oakwood Direct 

and is a Polkadoodles sentiment stamp set and co-ordinating paper pad.

Here's my card for this week.

I decided to go for a CAS card so that I could showcase this BIG Christmas sentiment, which is from a set I chose as part of the fantastic £100 store voucher I won from Uniko earlier in the year.  I also had another colouring session with my favourite LotV James the Bear.

I simply cut a piece of stamping white card, stamped my image and coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers, added glitter and Stickles, and stamped my sentiment. I then matted simply onto festive red and green card. 

Stamps: LotV - James Christmas Tree; Uniko Festive Sentiments;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers, holographic glitter; crystal Stickles.

Challenges I would like to enter:

As You Like It - Favourite Traditional or Contemporary Christmas (and Why)

Passion For Markers #662 - Anything Goes
