Hi Susan here....

Over at Whoopsi Daisy Challenge Blog we have a new challenge starting today and the theme is an easy one....'It's Christmas'. Come on over and join in the fun with us, we all need those Christmas cards making so why not join in a great challenge and maybe win something!!
For full details of the challenge and for loads of inspiration from the design team call across to Whoopsi Daisy.

Now for my card....I have used a selection of backing papers from my stash, and red card from The Paper Mill. I have distressed all edges and glittered with stickles. The snowflakes were made using pearlescent paper and a punch and then I added extra glitter to the pearlescent paper.
The beautiful red and gold ribbon and the pearls are from our local market. I have used a Martha Stewart punch for the red border and glittered the edges.
I have used two beautiful digi images from Whoopsi Daisy Digi Shop, these two images are from the same sheet 108,  I absolutely love these images they are so cute and vintage. I cut out the little girl and slightly shaped her before gluing her in place. I have used Pro-Markers to colour the images and then added red gems to the lamp-post for berries and flowersoft for snow.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card and leave comments, always much appreciated. Hope you liked it.
Love Susan
