A Christmas Buffet over at the Winter Wonderland

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today brings another fabulous challenge to help you all on your way to completing your Christmas cards and having a more relaxed Christmas Time.  The challenge this week is from the talented ladies of Team Kate so hop over to the  

where the theme is

A Christmas Buffet

The theme was chosen by the very talented Sally and she would like to see three of any of the following
Patterned Paper
1 Charm

Doesn't it sound so yummy, cannot wait to see what you all put on your plates. We have the wonderful Pollycraft sponsoring us this week.

Here is my design team inspirational piece
I chose some of my all time favourite papers in purple this time.  I decided to go with the following buffet items
Ribbon, Charm and Snowflake
The base layer and contrast is silver mirror card, the image is sat on a good old nestie with the tag from my nesties too.  The cut outs of the tag were too pretty to throw away so I used these as extra decoration, adding a circle of rhinestones around the Sentiments 4 You digi Sentiment, a few pearls to match the pearl brad and some distressing using Tim Holtz mulled lavender, such a soft shade.
This is the little snowflake charm and the very large die cut snowflake smothered in that lovely frosty feel washed glass.
Here is a close up of the image coloured with copics and the fluffy bits are liquid appliqué  I have added a few glittery dots around the image too for that extra sparkle.

This is one of my all time favourite images by Whiff of Joy, she comes out to play frequently.

I would like to welcome all of my new followers and wish you all well and good luck to you and all my followers in my celebration candy.  If you have not yet entered pop here to see why I am celebrating and what is on offer.  I would also like to say thank you to my wonderful visitors for such inspiring comments, love them all and love it that I can pop over to see you from the comment too.
