Winter Wonderland Challenge Relaunch Excitement and Blog Candy

Yes the Winter Wonderland Challenge has now moved to a Friday, just to keep you all on your toes. 
So here is my DT Christmas Combo card for the new Winter Wonderland Friday Challenge, inspired by a few challenges this week (I am kind of all out of sorts as normally, I know the challenges I can combo with but with the date changing wow it kept me on my toes)

The relaunch challenge at WW this week is being sponsored by Janet from Pink Gem Designs and, our new Sponsor this year, Simon Says Stamp.

I am entering this card into the following challenges 

Sketch Saturday - wow love circles and this sketch was just perfect

Create4fun - also circles

Totally Gorgeous Challenge 26 - Charming - "dam!" thought I had a penguin charm but nope so had to settle with a bell, but it matches the music scores ding dong!!!!!

Paper Sundaes Challenge 14 - no people - penguins are so much more cute :) and one of my best friends (recently engaged) loves penguins.

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 55 (World Penguin Day Celebration) - Black/White/Yellow or a Penguin (I wonder if my friend knows it is World Penguin Day - must remind her)

Cupcake Craft Challenge - A colour combo Red and White - I love this shade of red one of my favorites

Stamp Something - Charmed, I just love this challenge site, it varies so much.

wow that took some figuring out, but oh was so worth it. 

So onto the card
The base card it gold mirror card, with the Bo Bunny papers on top - think this one is called St. Nicks anyway got it from the Hobby House last Christmas, so pleased that I got plenty to last me through. Although I was there this Saturday and there are still some fabulous Christmas papers in.  The flowers are poinsettias again from the Hobby House (new in) The penguins are from Penny Black (I cut them all out) The ribbon was the wrong colour red and white so I used my copics to colour it deeper and I added the charm and some gold wire hand made scrolls.  I added stickles around the sentiment and a few small red pearls. (See above link where I shop)

This is a close up of the image and those new flowers
The image coloured with copics (found some new shades at Tilly's on Saturday, thanks Denise) Look at those flowers wow just perfect.  For all my stash bits see where I shop above.

Anyway a reminder my blog candy is still running alongside the Winter Wonderland Challenges until the 4th May at 8pm.  See here - please remember to meet all requirements thank you.  Visit the teamies at WW as they also have candy :)

Well it's Friday - I will be at work till 5pm so will have to link all of these to the challenges when I get home, don't think you can pre program that bit :(

Have a great day and don't forget to pop over to the Winter Wonderland Challenge site to see the changes and join in the fun.

Welcome to my new followers and thank you all for the recent wonderful comments, I savor everyone.

Hugs Kate xx
