Delicious Doodles Challenge #49 Christmas In August

Hello all, well I hope you are all coping well during the summer holidays and having a lovely time what ever it is you are doing

Yes you guessed it, it is challenge time again over at 

This weeks challenge is 

Yes we have mentioned Christmas uh oh!!!

So to enter all you need to do is make a project that goes to the theme above it can be anything. If you use a Delicious Doodles image you can enter twice, but if you do not use a Delicious Doodles image you may only enter the once.
The winner of the challenge is chosen by a random thingy, and you could win 5 yes 5 digi images of your choice, Don't forget if you do use a Delicious Doodles image you will  also be spotlighted. Good Luck

So here is my DT Piece for this weeks challenge :) I decided to go for a creepy theme instead of a traditional Christmas make 

For this piece I have used Pile O' Bones Paper and Skully Santa

To do this card, I used a blank 8x8 card 
Firstly I chose my backing paper and printed this off, also my image and sentiment once these were all printed off I then coloured in the Skully Santa using my promarkers, the colours I have used are:
Pastel Beige, Khaki, Poppy, Berry Red, Warm Grey 3, Cool Aqua, Purple and Emerald

Once he was all coloured in I then cut him out by hand and the same with the backing paper, I then got some glittered black card and cut this to size I also used my corner punch on the Pile o' Bones paper. I then stuck both my packing papers down onto my blank card, I then added my black feather some pearls and the black flower.

I then used my foam tape on Skully Santa and made this stand out from the card by layering up the foam tape and then stuck this to my backing papers

Lastly I added a strip of black ribbon along the bottom and mounted my sentiment on top of this and finished the whole card off by adding some diamant├ęs to the ribbon on each side of the sentiment

I hope you all have lots of fun with this challenge and it gets you into the Christmas mood, I really enjoyed doing this piece as it's different from the usual Christmas makes I do 
Have fun!!
