Light it Up with the Winter Wonderland

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today is my last day at work before my wonderful week off, and wow I am in need of it and it is also time for the next challenge at 

today I got to host the challenge and I have chosen the theme of

Light it Up
A Christmas card with lights on it

and we are sponsored by the fabulous Janette owner of the 
Dragon's Lair

Janette was kind enough to provide the DT with some of her gorgeous images, just perfect for this challenge, thank you Janette :)

I made this creation using "In a Tangle"
I made a 5 x 5 inch card decorating the inner to match.
I used some fabulous papers from the Secret Crafter Shop my grand oval nestie scallop and matching oval, and the MS snowflake edge punch.  The base colour and contrast is lime green, and the ribbon has been coloured with copics R13.
I have taken the image close up from an angle so you might be able to see the Atyou Spika glitter on the rope and the glossy accents on the lights, to raise them up like bulbs.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 300 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 300 follower candy you can do so here, thank you to Feline for now advertising my candy too. 

OMG!!!! you lot are the best ever 412 followers, I am totally astounded, cannot believe it and even better more candy to buy for September Whoop Whoop !!!!!!!

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!!
