Any Stamp Will Do and I need some crafty advice!

Just a quick post tonight to show the card I made for Stef's colour challenge at Any Stamp Will Do.
Stef's colour choices were red, green, blue and yellow (or gold).
The papers are all Stampin Up, I used my Fiskars border punch for the scalloped edge, flower is from Tabby Crafts, ribbon is Dovecraft and of course I have used a Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl which I coloured with Copics and used a bit of glitter on her star.
Just a simple card but that's just the kind of cards I need to be making just now so I can get lots churned out for Christmas. Especially as I have the school Christmas Fayre to make cards to sell at and I need to make othr gifts to see too, which I haven't even started and it's on the 10th and 11th of December. Think I'd better get my bum in gear!

Speaking of the Christmas Fayre. I was asked today if I could decorate the Santa's Grotto. They really want it to be WOW, so no pressure there lol. I need to make a paper fireplace and some decorations to hang up and anything else I can think of, so I was wandering if any of you imaginative people have any ideas for me? In other!!! I have no idea how I'm gonna do this so any ideas would be gratefully received :)

Thanks for stopping by

Lora, what a lovely card. As I see more of the Gorjuss girls around I want one more and more!! Santa's grotto - that's certainly a different kind of challenge. I hope it goes well for you. Kym xxx

Love this card Lora, she is coloured beautifully. Had to made a large fireplace for school one year. I used brown card, from the school and marked it with black to look like wood and just used 3 rectangle shapes if you know what I mean. Made a fake fire using paints and glitter and rolled up newspaper sprayed with black paint to look like coal. Hope that helps.

Great card Lora - lovely papers and image. Sorry I can't help you with the grotto thing. Not my forte at all.
