TYI week 38 secret Santa

This weeks challenge is 'secret santa' and based round the Secret Santa we have at work where you pick names from a hat and buy a small present for that person whether it be something you know they'd like or a surprise,they also said you could theme it to a colour or hobby..........

So this week I have dedicated my Tag to Kirsten who originally got me hooked on cardmaking by putting me my first cardmaking 'kit' together about two and a half years ago!
She has just got back into stamping and we went mad at the weekend buying FF staps so we could share the images lol!!!
This is my favourite stamp at the moment I love all the WOJ stamps in this particular style but I dont actually have any so this is a bit sentimental as this is the only image of this particular stamp I have..sniff!
but hey back to the challenge!
I coloured the image with promarkers and shaded with sakura stardust by watercolouring them I added sakura stardust 'high lights to her hair and embellished with co-ordinating prima flowers. I used my fiskers punch for the border.....and a cuttle bg embossing folder for the base card then lightly sanded it to distress it slightly......

Thanks for dropping by Emma xxx
