Deck the Halls



Good morning. Today I have a card to share that I started quite some time ago. As I have not had much time for crafting this week I have been adding the finishing touches to some projects so that my poor blog will not sit empty.

Today I have an easel card featuring Lil Christmas Lolita Willow from Tickled Pink Stamps. This gorgeous gal is just full of fun Christmas spirit as she decks the halls and she needed a card that was just as fun. I have paired her up with some great papers from MME that really picked up on the colours in the image and then used some really bold, contrasting cardstock colours for matting to make it all pop.


As I would like to enter this into the Tickled Pink Challenge where they are having a GDT call, I went digging through my supply of chipboard and found these great snowflakes. After painting them red, I have enhanced them with loads of Stickles and then topped them off with some sparkly mini ornaments that I picked up last year.

I want to thank you all for coming by and for all of the lovely comments that you have been leaving lately, I really appreciate them. Have a great day!

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
