Deck the halls with boughs of holly - Winter Wonderland DT Christmas Card

Hello to all of you out there in blog land
yep today rings in another Friday and this means the new challenge at Winter Wonderland

but before we move onto the new, lets just say how fabulous all the entries were last week for my monochromatic challenge, I really enjoyed visiting and commenting on all of the entries.

In case  you missed my exciting news pop here to see what you missed
and today is the last day of my candy here

So on to this weeks challenge

our sponsor this week is our regular monthly sponsor
who are offering the random winner a gift voucher of $15.00

So our host this week is Janet (aka Clarky J) and she has chosen the theme of 

Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly

yep the more holly the better, think I went off on an overload but I enjoyed myself.

So this is my creation for this weeks DT card
The base layer is red mirror card topped with on the front the Papermania "Silent Night" paper and on the inner (I have to apologize but I am sure you all know it - this was a remnant in my odds draw).  The image is stamped onto a circle nestie and embossed.  The image was coloured first with copics and then I added the little holly stamp all the way round to frame the image.  I added claret stickles for the berries on these and used pearls on the inside.  The sentiment is a vellum one that I got from Tilly's I believe. (see where I shop on the page link above)

So onto the close ups
The sentiment
The inner return, just look at all those juicy holly berries
and the image coloured with those gorgeous copics
I really enjoyed creating this little number.

So what have I combined this weeks card with as you know us ladies of the WW Challenge love to combo, so here is what I have entered this card into this week

Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Die Cut Dreams - Use vellum

Edited: thank you Julie
I am also entering this into the Scrapbook Sisters Challenge - Over the Edge

not too many this week I am afraid :) but I had an idea in my head and had to go with it.

Anyway I would like to say thank you to all of those that visit me and leave such inspirational comments, I love and appreciate them all and welcome to my new followers.

Well hope your have a great weekend and do lots and lots of crafting I know I will be and if you are going to the Ally Pally enjoy your spending :) do us proud ladies.

Hugs Kate xx
