Hark the Herald Angel (s)

Happy Monday to you all and hope you all had a great weekend and are all refreshed for the week ahead.  I would like to welcome my new followers and thank you so much for becoming followers!

How's your Christmas shopping going?  Not long to go now - gulp! I have another Christmas card today which I made to enter the LOTV challenge which is to make a card for someone special.  I have used one of their stamps and tried to keep the colouring to a minimum so it would be monochromatic really as I quite like that look at the moment. 

The papers are from Pink Petticoat and the backing card is Coredinations.  I have embossed the piece at the back and sanded it down.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid and I have distressed them with some acrylic paint then dipped them in Twinklets. I found the little heart on my worktop, it was left over from punching out a birdcage out of an old cat food box and was one of the bits left over that you would throw away so I painted it in acrylic and covered it in Twinklets.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

LOTV - Card for Somenone Special
CES Challenge - Snowflakes (I've used snowflake embossing folder)
One Stop Craft Challenge - Blue
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays - Embossing
Just Some Lines - Tic Tac Toe (Embossing, Ribbon and die cuts)
Crafty Ann's Challenge - Monochromatic and/or sketch
Crafty Catz Challenge - Snowflakes
Paperworks Co - Photo Inspiration
DYSU - Splash of Blue
Delightful Challenges - Bingo (Pattern Paper, Die cuts and Flowers)
Thanks so much for looking, please take care xx
