Totally Papercrafts DT - Christmas Punches

Morning All!! Well, I am feeling a whole lot better this morning, just can't shake the cough though but we'll get there! Can you believe it's Friday again and already the 3rd of December? Friday means another challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and this week our lovely Heidi has chosen the theme of Christmas Punches, easy peasy!! For my card I have chosen this gorgeous image by Mo Manning as she is having a dt call and I thought I would kill two birds with one stone lol! It would be an ultimate dream come true to work with her super images so please keep your fingers and toes crossed for me. The Christmas punches that I decided to use are Marianne snowflakes and I have layered three together with a spacer and diamante brad from the hobby house. I also used another of Marianne's dies for the swirl behind the flowers. The designer paper is by Magnolia which I purchased from Crafts U Love.

This gorgeous little girl has been coloured with Copics. Sadly the pics don't show all the bling as the weather has been really grey & dull. I've used loads of glamour dust on the frills around her nightgown, flowersoft for the top of the stocking, stickles on the stocking and diamond dust on the poinsettia's which are from Wild Orchid Crafts. If you click on the pic to get a larger view I'm sure you'll see all the bling lol! I'll be entering this card into the DP2 Challenge (Mo's Challenge) as this week their theme is glitz & glimmer.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to hop on over to the challenge blog for some fabby inspiration by our talented design team and join in the fun with us! Hope you have a super weekend. Lotsa luv xxxx
