Candle Light Romance

This is my second DT post today, if you are looking for my Ooh La La Creations card you can find it below.

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is: White on White hosted by Kelly - you can also enter a card with an anything goes theme as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image that will be fine.

I have used a fabulous coloured image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Triple CD.

I cut out my image with a Spellbinders circle  die and placed it on a Heart Circle die cut.  I added some embossed lines to the base layer and then embossed another layer with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder.

The poinsettias are a Sue Wilson die and the pearls are from my stash.

Our fabulous sponsors this week are:

one lucky winner will receive a Fabulous $20 Reward Card
(Winner must be a USA Resident, it's Territories or Canada)


Di's Digi Stamps are offering a second lucky winner a $12 voucher

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

Allsorts Challenge Week 282 - Christmas
Digistamps 4 Joy Challenge 102 - Animals
CHNC Challenge Extra for October - Anything Christmas Goes
Jingle Belles Challenge - Not a CREATURE was stirring
Crafting By Designs Challenge - Get Ready For Christmas

Thank you for popping in today, don't forget to take a look at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and join in with our White on White challenge.
