My second December inspiration card for LOTV and a very different colour combo today using one of my favourite LOTV stamps. A snowman and penguins, what more could you want. I used this stamp for my hubby's Christmas card last year and this time I used it for my friend Lynsey's card. With so many stamps to use it is a shame I haven't used it more.
Image - LOTV
Medium - Copics
Papers - Kaisercraft Dear Santa
Dies - MFT stitched jumbo fishtail, MB and Docrafts snowflakes
Punch - X cut corner rounder
Wooden trees - Hobbycraft
Berries - The Ribbon Girl
Other - Stickles and pearl pen

Graph'It Gold or silver 
Bunny Zoe Sparkle 
Dies R Us Winter (use snowflakes) 
Penny Black and more at Allsorts anything goes with a stamp 
Sparkles Christmas Die cuts for Christmas
Simon says Die crazy
Whimsy Winter option snowflakes 
Penny's anything goes 
Winter Wonderland Christmas bingo (animal, glitter, flowers)
As you like it Traditional or non traditional colours for Christmas (Non traditional for me mostly as I love experimenting with colour combinations and purple is my favourite colour)
