Christmas Fun

Good afternoon, I hope you all have a lovely weekend planned, I'm going to have a quiet one this week to make up for last weeks busy one.

I have made this card to enter into this months Crafter's Companion challenge and the theme this time is Christmas Wishes.  I thought I would try something different from the usual square card that I normally make, big mistake, I just don't seem to be able to get the proportions right for anything else any more.

Anyway this is my card

I used the Humphrey Christmas Decoupage kit, I do love these cute Humphrey images and I seem to be doing more and more decoupage at the moment, the papers are also part of the kit.  I used my favourite Core'dinations Whitewash for the base and also embossed a rectangle using a Darice embossing folder.  I die cut a sentiment label, added some ribbon and some snowflakes from my stash.

This inside of my card has also been decorated.

Image and Papers: Crafter's Companion - Humphrey Christmas Kit
Card Stock:  Core'dinations Whitewash 
Tools:  Crafter's Companion - Darice Embossing Folder, Spellbinders - Ribbon Tag Trio and Classic Squares (inside card)
Embellishments:  ribbon and snowflakes from stash
Sentiment: Joanna Sheen - House Mouse

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

Crafter's Companion Challenge 15 - Christmas Wishes
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Creature Comforts
Mark's Finest Papers Challenge Week 24 - Things with Wings (there are lots of little birds flying around the bird table)

Thank you for looking today, please leave me a comment, I would love to know what you think.
