Red and Green with the Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the next challenge at the

Red and Green

We have two fabulous sponsors this week, that means two winners

who are offering 4 digi images of the winners choice

our second sponsor is

who is also offering 4 digi images of the winners choice

So here is what I created for my design team inspirational piece but don't forget to hop on over to the main challenge site to see the rest of the design teams gorgeous creations.

I used a very old stamp, that a dear crafting friend gave me when I first started crafting.

The base layer and holly punched contrast is a green mirror card.  The papers are from a stack from Grimsby Crafts but lost the top page sorry.  The gorgeous pearls and red gem surround was a gift from a very generous blogging buddy, I wanted to keep them for ever but eventually I just had to put them on this card.

Here is a close up of the image coloured in copics

As always, I would like to thank all my wonderful followers and visitors for their lovely inspiring comments, which allow me to hop over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
