Charisma Cards Pearls and Lace

I can't belive it's the 23rd already, where did the month go? In fact where did the whole year go???!!!
My kids are super excited about Christmas but I haven't even got half of their pressies yet, so I'm off into town today to do some shopping. I hate shopping at this time of the year, you just can't get moved in the shops and people just push past you...grrrr, but it hasto be done I suppose.

The challenge at Charisma Cardz this week is running for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year so you have more time to get your entries in and it's was my turn to chose the challenge.
So I chose Pearls and Lace. I know I am so predictable lol, but it makes a nice change from Christmas cards!

I didn't have much time to make my card this week, infact I made it last night in a rush but I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

                                                                                                                                                                                                I used a Tilda image that a friend sent me months ago which I coloured with Promarkers. I only had one of them but I really want the stamp because this one reminds me so much of my Daughter Rhianna.
The spotty and flowery papers are from the same double sided sheet and is by My Minds Eye and I foun the other paper in my stash and thought it would go perfect with the image since it has tutu's on it, but I kinda covered most of it up lol. I think it is a Karen Foster design.
Everything else was found in my stash, except the pretty pin which I got a while ago from a lovely blogging friend.
I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday, so I am entering my card there.

Right I'd better get off of this computer and get some shopping done! I should be back tomorrow with a card but just incase that doesn't go to plan, I wish you all a Merry Christmas! Hope you all have a fab time :)
Oh and remember my followers mini candy, which is all explained in this post here, but basically all you have to do is leave some comments on any post from now until the candy is drawn and as long as you have left 2 or more comments in that 2 week period and you are on my followers list, you will be entered into the draw, oh and every comment you leave gives you an extra entry :)

Thanks for stopping  by.
