Winter Wonderland - How Charming (DT)

Oh yes my lovelies, it is time for another WINTER WONDERLAND challenge!  It is Team Marianne this week and guess who is hosting ...... go on...... have a guess .... yay, it's me, Squirrel!!  Oh the nerves, I cannot begin to tell you, as this is my first time in charge!

We are sponsored  this week by STITCHY BEAR STAMPS who are offering a $10 gift certificate for their great store


Now, as you will be able to see (unless you are cross eyed) I had a bit of bother with my card this week.  All was going quite well until I added the flowers - and forgot about the wet glue, so I managed to move my image a tiny bit, only by a millimetre or so but I didn't notice until the glue was dry and now it's squint and too late to straighten it!


Oh well, can't win 'em all, but at least you get the idea!  Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image: Lili Of The Valley Moonlight Wishes
Colouring Medium: Distress Inks
Papers: Dovecraft Back To Basics Christmas and gold mirri card
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts roses and rose leaves
Extras:  Berries - cut down dress making pins, Madeira gold thread,
Just For You star charm (thanks Helen!) and Craftwork Cards Candi
Punch: Martha Stewart stars border

The rest of the DT have created some beauties so don't forget to visit their individual blogs to share the love.

Hope to see you over at the challenge.
Hugs Sxx
