CES new challenge - Entertain us!!

I've got my CES DT hat on today and it's time for our new challenge, after our two week New Beginnings challenge to celebrate the birth of our gorgeous Emma's gorgeous Olivia!  Have your seen her pics over on Emma's blog here - she is a little darling!! We had lots of cards entered into the challenge - don't forget to check out the winners and top picks!!

We're back to our normal weekly challenge now at CES Challenges and we have a fab challenge, as chosen by our gorgeous Caroline and that is Entertain Us - make a card inspired by a song or a film!!  Loved this challenge and went with a song - Santa Baby! 
I've used this gorgeous Christmas image from Mo's Digital Pencil, called Little Present (you can find her here).  She's coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with added glossy accents on her boots, buckle and bauble earring!!  Just a shame my pic hasn't picked it up! 
My papers are a mix of Crate Paper Portrait  and Echo Park Victoria Garden, both purchased from Crafty Emma's On-Line store, along with the Webster's Tinsel, pins, pearls and pearl heart.  The twinkling that you can just pick up on the flowers is Crystal Glamour dust also from Emma's store.  I picked up the little slate tag from a charity shop a few weeks ago - they are so cute and you can write any message you like on them!  I used a white gel pen for mine.

Don't forget that you could win a wonderful £10 voucher (excluding postage) to spend in Crafty Emma's Store so do play along with us this week! 

My teamies at CES have got some awesome makes to share with you - I always love to see the different inspiration songs/films that people use in this type of challenge!!
Happy Saturday to you all!
