Love this card


I don't often make a card that I really think I can't part with but this card has so many of my favourite things on it and I love the way it turned out so I may not be able to send this to anyone.  I bought 2 of the new Wee stamps and can't wait to use the other one now.
Image - Wee Stamps Candlelight
Medium - Copics
Papers - Kaisercraft Silver Bells
Die - Doohickey slender firs
Crispy ribbon - Live and Love Crafts
Other - gauze, bell charm, twine, shabby white frantage, glitter, DI Iced Spruce

Challenges
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Christmas diecuts 
The Ribbon Girl a card 
Dies R Us the leaves on the trees 
Noor! Design UK Cas or fussy and fancy 
Dream Valley Embossing (I used frantage)
Vilda Stamps anything goes

It's my Birthday today so I am hoping to go for a walk and coffee somewhere and probably a light lunch. This evening we are going out with friends to Ask Italian and then to the theatre to see The Hollies in concert.

I hope you have entered my Birthday candy.
