Let's Go Potty for Christmas with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in  the land of blog

Today sees the next challenge at the

the theme this week has been chosen by little old me and it  is 

Animal Antics

we are sponsored by
The lovely Sara has sponsored us with £10 voucher to spend in the online store.

so here is my inspirational piece,  however do please hop on over to the main challenge site to see lots more gorgeous inspiration.
I made a cute Christmas card, with little Bella in her Pot, hope she does not get stuck in there she will miss all the Xmas fun :)

Papers - Xmas Bella by Wild Rose Studio
you can see the video of the papers here
Image - Bella in Pot by Wild Rose Studio 
Sentiment - Jolly Greetings by Wild Rose Studio
The base layer and contrast is silver mirror card.  I have edge punched the lace/ribbon panel with the MS snowflake punch, I threaded green ribbon through the lace adding bows along it.  Lace has been added to the side of the image and a Cheery Lynn holly die cut with a few pearl berries.

Here is a close up of the image Bella in Pot coloured in copics, with stickles for the fluffy bits and liquid appliqué for the snow along with some added Atyou glitter in red and green on the holly.
