Little Urchin

Morning All!
My card for today features 'one' (LOL!) of my favourite images from Mo Manning - Urchin with Bird. She is so pretty and lovely to colour in. This time I used my Spectrum Noirs and coloured her in shades of browns, reds, burgundy and greens.

Still raiding my stash I used chocolate brown coloured papers from old Forever Friends and Papermania christmas pads, then teamed this with a gold mat cut using a Marianne die and cut up so that I just used the top and bottom of the die cut.

I added a wee bit of Stickles, gems coloured with my alcohol markers to match, organza ribbon and a lovely little resin flower from The Ribbon Girl.

I then decorated the inside to match and popped my sentiment in here. I made this card as a Christmas card but I think you could also use it as a card for a winter birthday. Hope you like it!

Anyhoo, I'd like to enter it in the following challenges:
Mo Manning - Seeing Spots
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes and Blog hop
Cards Galore - Add a gem, glitter or candi (added gems and glitter)
My Mum's Craft Shop - Spots and Stripes (2nd entry)
ABC Christmas - Chocolate and Cream - (Chocolate brown papers and cream bow and resin flower)

Have a great day and I hope things don't get to windy and rainy for those suffering from terrible flooding here in Britain.
Best wishes
