Prickly Holly at the Winter Wonderland

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the next challenge at the


with the theme this week being hosted by the very talented Lisa, the theme is

Holly

We are sponsored this challenge by the fabulous

who are offering the winner a gift voucher of £10

So here is what I created for my design team inspirational piece but don't forget to hop on over to the main challenge site to see the rest of the design teams gorgeous creations.

Now I thought I would move slightly away from the norm here, and have gone with  a Mo Manning image with Holly for her wings.  A simple layout with a layer of red card with the image straight on top of this.  The focus here is on the image only.

Here is a close up of the the image coloured in copics with Atyou glitter enhancements, and two layers of lovely lace from Grimsby Crafts for her underskirt.  The beautiful gem strip is a present I received from a lovely and very generous blogging buddy, but don't they work so perfectly. I placed three tiny tiny white pearls from the hobby house, coloured in R59 copic for the berries on the holly in her hair.

As always, I would like to thank all my wonderful followers and visitors for their lovely inspiring comments, which allow me to hop over and visit you in return.
