It's Christmas!!!!!..... at SFTW

Morning all! Well actually it's quite a sunny day here today in the North of the UK so maybe I am being a bit early with my Christmas predictions! But I'm off to work soon so I am going to stick with the festive feeling to keep me going!
Over at Stampin for the Weekend we have a new challenge for you and this one is STARTING CHRISTMAS EARLY , we are sponsored by the brilliant Simon says Stamp again so we do hope you will join in with us.
I love to occasionally use some completely non traditional colours for christmas cards, after all why not?!! I have used the wonderful Tim Holtz shabby chic papers for this card (may just have to get even more of these later!) along with flowers, rose seam binding trim and lace from Wild orchids. My butterfly is from the lovely Geraldine at little snippets and my sentiment is Waltzingmouse. My frosty wreath memory box die was bought with a fab voucher for my birthday from the lovely Laurie (thanks so much sweetie!) and I have used lots of white crackle paint on my edges.
My oh so gorgeous image is Saturated Canary for Little Darlings rubber stamps. I have coloured her with prisma pencils, given her wings the glamour dust treatment and then edged in victorian velvet ink. My little swirls in the corner are also Waltzingmouse stamps from the same set as my sentiment (love,love,love these stamps!)
Determined to find some challenges for this one! 
So I would like to enter..Wild orchids layer it up, Cupcake cards and crafts pretty pastels and Crafty cardmakers wings.
Do check out what my fab teamies have made and thanks so so much for coming by my blog again!
Big hugs
