Woodland Christmas

Happy Sunday!!

I am so happy I got to make a couple of cards over the weekend.
Here's one of them using another one of my brand new Lili of the Valley stamps. This one is called "Woodland Christmas". OMG I can't believe how cute this stamp is!!

I decided to play in this week's LOTV challenge. The challenge is a sketch by Bev.

I flipped it somewhat to make it work with my image. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo ink on couture 80lb card stock. It was then colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. The edges were sponged using soft sky ink.

I used my favorite christmas paper of this year again, by Bo Bunny, along with some stampin up designer paper. Embellished with some ribbon, snowflakes and of course glitter. To finish it all of I did some sewing with my janome mini.

Here's a close up of the image.


I really wish the sparkles would show up better. It's really sparkly in real life.

Challenges:

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. Hope you liked the card.
I'll be back again on tuesday with a new card.

Have a great day,
Ellie.
