A Christmas Story

Once Upon a Time in a land far away... who didn't love a great Christmas story as a child.

This week our Papertake Weekly challenge is Christmas Crackers, that is (use a Christmas image that you are crackers about).

When I stumbled across this wonderful printed book box in Winners I immediately thought Lil Victorian Christmas Lolita Lylah , a wonderful image from Tickled Pink Stamps. Before I knew it this box was coming home with me and this challenge has been the perfect opportunity to bring the vision to life.

After colouring the image with Copics and cutting her out, I have mounted the image on the box and set to work embellishing.

To add the perfect Victorian touches I have used lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts layered over a piece of greenery from a Christmas pick and accented with lots of my favorite red pearls.

I hope you will join us for the challenge, I love stopping by your blogs for a visit and I am looking forward to seeing all of your favorite Christmas images.

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to stop by the Papertake Weekly blog for more inspiration.
