winter wishes ...

stamp: lili of the valley ice skating (ST341)
inks: memento(tuxedo black), letraset promarkers( various), tim holtz distress (brushed corduroy)
papers: first edition paper silent night 8x8 pad, craftwork cards digi cardstock, a4 sheet of 300gsm card, silver miri card, acetate
dies/punches: scallop edge border punch, labels collection framelits from stampin up!
extras: liquid pearls (bisque), stickles(diamond)

had a busy week this week, visited the great northern paper craft extravaganza (treated myself to lots of new goodies) and then started on the tim holtz creative chemistry 102 online course, giving me plenty to do. so I decided to give myself a little challenge for this post, by entering 4 competitions using one card... and here it is!!
i started by ticking 2 of the boxes by colouring this lovely christmas stamp from LOTV with my promarkers, which needed a snow fall theme. mounting them on an acetate fronted card fulfilled the transparency brief on the ABC Christmas challenge. the foiled wintery paper and miri card matt, (die cut to match the smaller stamp layer)added the shine and sparkle needed for the ribbon girl challenge. i also put some glittered accents on the girls hat and booties for extra sparkle... a Christmas must have for me as you may have guessed by now!! 
'anything goes'
'snow is falling'
't is for transparent'

'make is sparkly'
 i think this makes for a lovely grown up feeling card, perfect for sending Christmas wishes to a couple... i hope you would agree
