Mistletoe and Wine!

No, not the dated song with Cliff in an awful jumper but this weeks challenge which was set by Sylvie.  She chose the Mistletoe and I chose the colour scheme of wine!  I liked the challenge, thanks Sylvie as it made me search all of my xmas stash for a suitable image and I settled on this one by Bugaboo.

The snowflake mat it is on was one made with the new Martha Stewart Stamp around the page that was the TSV earlier this week.  All I can say is that I loved the concept but the actual device needs a few tweaks to stop 'hidden' ink from getting everywhere you dont want it!  The centre space had to be covered to hide all of the ink splodges hence, its going back :(

Image - Bugaboo
coloured with - PM's
BP - Pink Petticoat dotty snowflakes
embellies - Card Candy

The next challenge is set now by Margaret and she has chosen all white with a  touch of glitter!  That's a really lovely one so if you fancy joining in with us then just contact one of us who will explain what is what!  We are all listed on my sidebar and while you're there you may want to hop over and see what the other girls have done with Sylvie's challenge.

Have a lovely week and thanks for calling in!

This is a fab card Keryn - shame about the punch though, but rightly send it back if it doesn't do the job. Hugs, Claire x

Fab card, Keryn (and those stars were a real bargain) - pity about the TSV (wasn't tempted - glad now). This would be just right for my 'build it up' challenge this week on my CHNC - would be good if you could link it there. x
