3 Challenges in 1 Card

Hi Again, I knew I would be back pretty sharpish after the last post lol, I am sure it must happen to everyone that you make a card your not keen on, it was bugging me so I made this one for my own redemption lol

It is for the High Hopes Challenge which is "fuzzy", The Truly Scrumptious Challenge which is " a fab sketch and make your own buttons" and The Dutch Dare Challenge which is "tropical" not often I manage to combine 3 challenges in one, so I understand if it cant be counted :O)
I used the High Hopes Tropical Santa image, (to fit the dutch dare part) coloured with promarkers, I know this is not a trad christmas card, but it is an extra one scrubbed off my ever growing list! The gorgeous papers and sentiment are Cosmo Cricket- Get Happy I think.
These are the fuzzy wool balls I cut off some ribbonThese are my make shift buttons,lol, I sort off distressed the edge a little, I love the idea to make your own embellies, something I must do more of
and this is the inside, With the image in full.
Thanks for Looking. I doubt I will blog anything else today lol, my housework is screaming at me ugh, so Hope to go on a nice blog hop.
Enjoy your weekend thanks for stopping by.xxx
