Happy Monday!

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.

Today's card is for the following challenges:

LOTV Challenge ~ Bingo (Charms, Flowers & Buttons)
Meljen's Designs ~ Red & Gold
Totally Papercraft ~ Layer upon layer
Winter Wonderland ~ Vintage Christmas
The Secret Crafter ~ Wrap up warm

Materials Used:

LOTV image ~ Shine a light
Woodware border punch
Poinsettia's, gold bow, snowflake charm, red & white twine ~ Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment ~ HOTP forever Christmas cards
Background paper ~ Forever Friends A Christmas tale
Ribbon ~ Pepper's Christmas party glittered ribbon sticker
Stickles ~ Star dust
Buttons, brads, gold card & flock from crafty stash
Pro markers

I added a flock detail to the fur of the little girl's coat, which unfortunately you can't see to well.  The weather is terrible and there is not much light anywhere in the house.

Sorry it's a short one today, but it is half term and life in our home is a bit crazy just trying to grab a bit of time to craft is pretty hard. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Love Em x
