Another one for the Christmas box!!

I only have a few of the Sweet Pea Christmas stamps (for now lol) but this is one of my favourites, for a chance I've used a pastel colour scheme and coloured her pale blue and green

The image is coloured with promarkers and matted on some beige card distressed with vintage photo DI. The main bp is from Dovecraft and the circular one is made using loads of gorgeous cosmic shimmer powders in pale blue and green and a resist technique with snowflake stamps and clear EP, I think i got carried away with all the mica as its really reflecting the light and not showing up on the photo very well.

The vellum border panel is punched with an EK success border punch (from the lovely Linda at Jazzlins Designs), I had a feeling it would be great on vellum and I love the embossed dots!! I had to use some vellum as this weeks challenge at Bah Humbug is to use vellum on your card (that vellum I got on Saturday is so scrummy its being kept for stroking at the minute Ann!!). The bp and  the embellies are also from Jazzlins and the ribbon and lace are from my stash.

I've used the sketch from the challenge over at Create 4 Fun for my layout and I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

Wild Orchid: Pastels
Allsorts: Bingo Challenge (my line is pearls, flowers, punch)
A Pocket Full  of Posies: Champagne and Roses (a celebration card, my favourite celebration is Christmas)
Lollipop: Winter play (snow and ice)
Dotties World: Anything goes with a Christmas theme

Thanks for visiting today, I really must thank Ann, Irene and Max at Bah Humbug as they have kept me so organised this year and I have a box full of Christmas cards already. This will be the first year I'm not in panic mode at Christmas lol
