All wrapped up for the snow

I am just loving these new LOTV stamps and want them all, which is just out of the question. Luckily my friends Lynsey and Lisa both stamped this little lady for me. The card is my guest DT card for the challenge of a Christmas easel card over at CES. The snowflake paper is from the Daisy and Dandelion pack and the sparkly light blue paper from Henbury Lane. I used the MS snowflake border punch again. The cherry blossom flowers are from Wild Orchid and the blue roses were a pressy from Crafty Emma from her shop for being her guest designer this month. I used a Sizzix holly die and added white gel pen stitches and punched some sparkly white fern leaves to add to the flowers. I added glitter flocking to her outfit for extra sparkle. The snowflake confetti is from Paperchase, sentiment from an old sticker set.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Calendar Blue with flowers
Totally Gorjuss Flowers
Fussy and fancy Christmas colours
Bah Humbug Favourite medium (mine is Promarkers and Sakura clearstar pen)
Fab 'n' funky Whateva
Our Creative Corner Fun with folds

We're off out to the Theatre again this evening, this time to see Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake, meal beforehand at Bella Italia so should be a good evening. Hope you have fun whatever you are doing. Don't forget to enter my candy above.

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

This is such a darling image and I love the colors and DPs you used. But I'm stumped on how you did the blue dots around your main image. Is that a stamp or did you dot them in with a marker? Anyway, they look awesome. Wonderful take on the Fun With Folds challenge. So happy you could join in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.
