Gifts all around with the Secret Crafter Design Team

Good morning to you all in  the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the

the theme this week as chosen by the very talented Franz  is 


We are sponsored this week by

a £10 voucher to spend in the online store for the winner

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 Christmas card with a large Christmas Gift :)

Base colour and contrast is a lime green
Papers - Milton Christmas by Wild Rose Studio
Image - Pickle with Gift by Wild Rose Studio 
The sentiment from stash.

The image has been cut out with a grand nestie circle and a scallop circle frame.  The corners of the base paper have been punched with an MS holly corner punch and little pearls added.  A Cheery Lynn holly punch has been added around one side, with holly and roses the other.  The image has been outlined with a white gel pen to create snow and snowflakes added as well as glitter around the image plate.

Here is a close up of the image Pickle with Gift, I have used stickles for his fluffy bits and a red and olive Atyou pen for the Holly for that extra Xmas sparkle
