Hello! Time for another challenge over at stampin for the weekend and due to the festive season, this one will run for 3 wks rather than 2wks. We also have a super easy challenge of christmas this time, so any last minute christmassy creations you are still working on can be entered!
I chose to use this beautiful sweetpea stamp which I have had for a while but had not yet inked up, she is stunning isn't she? This card is actually for my mum and I doubt I will have sent it by the time this is posted so maybe she won't be looking today!
I have followed the sketch this time at create for fun and my gorgeous papers are free (yes FREE!!) super digi downloads from far far hill. If you haven't been across there do, there is sooooo much fabulous vintage freebies to download!
I have coloured my gorgeous fairy with Prismas and have distressed all my paper and image edges with stormy sky ala Tim Holtz. My edges are also silver stickled to the max! My glittery snowflakes are from a hobbycraft stash I've had for an age and my pearls are from stash. My sentiment circle is a digi one from crafty sentiments and my spotty ribbon is also a hobbycraft purchase which has been distressed with vintage photo. No flowers today but still stacks of sparkle and pretty!
