A Christmas Couple

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and this week our theme is 'A Christmas Couple' - we would like to see two people and don't forget Christmas projects only.

I have used a fabulous stamp from Whiff of Joy that I won quite some time ago and had not inked up.  I have coloured my image with ProMarkers and used papers from the MME Vintage Christmas collection.


My base card stock is Kraft and I have added Glamour Dust glitter for snow and on their clothes, I also added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to the glass on the lamp post.  The mini scalloped border was die cut and I added card candy and some string from my stash.  The sentiment is part of the Whiff of Joy stamp set.


Our sponsors this week are Oyster Stamps 


who are offering a £10 voucher

and



who are offering this fabulous stamp


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sparkles Christmas Challenge 38 - More than 3 Embellishments
CHNC Challenge 166 - Ribbon, twine, fibres etc.
CHNC Challenge Extra for March - Anything Christmas goes
Shopping our Stash Challenge 141 - 3-2-1 (3 papers, 2 people, 1 sentiment)
Sparkle N Sprinkle March Challenge - Anything Goes with glitter etc.

Make sure you pop over to the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our 'A Christmas Couple' challenge - don't forget it must be a Christmas card.

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
