So this is my entry into the Allsorts Challenge Blog
This card was made using two pieces of parchment.The scene is painted on the second piece and the lantern and grid work is done on the first piece .The trickiest part was getting it all lined

Need to get a move on

As Christmas is creeping up fast and i don't seem to have made hardly any cards yet
I decided for the parchment ones i make this year,they will be all the same Quick and easy lol
They will just have a different image
The grid is designed by Annie and Piet Jannsen and the image is off a CD.I have embossed the image from the back to give it dimension,I have also dorso some colour behind Santa
I have entered this in a challenge i have just been told about at Susie's Sassy designs

What a shock

I have just found out that I have been picked for a Design Team :)
