Here is my card
I have used papers and Poinsettia which are all available at Crafty Ann's Digi Shop, I have printed them using a glossy photo paper which gives an extra glow.  I mounted the flower onto green mirror card I added some floral lace and glittered snowflakes. 
This is a side view which shows the decoupage and glow a little more.
If you would like to see creativity and inspiration then please pay a visit to the DTM their work is awesome.
I do hope you will join our challenge the penultimate before Christmas, remember you can use just the sketch or the sketch and a Christmas card or a Christmas card not using the sketch, see we are very flexible and leave the decision to you.  It would be lovely to see you use any of Crafty Ann's papers and/or images, however, we so enjoy visiting and seeing your beautiful work whatever it may be. So hope to see you soon.

Birthday Card

Hi all I have yet another card to show you which is a card I made for a friend's sister whose birthday is on Boxing Day.
I have used one of my new House Mouse images that I bought from Joanna Sheen some time ago but have only just got around to inking it up.  I have coloured this with promarkers and mounted onto pink pearlescent card.  The papers are SU and as they are double sided I have pulled one corner down and secured with a flower brad. I used my Marianne die for the corner, I am so loving these die cuts I think they really add that little bit of elegance to a card.  I added lace, pink bow, flowers, gems and a butterfly also die cut from a Marianne Die, the sentiment I created with the background colour using my Craft Studio graphic programme.
I am entering this into the challenge at Party Time Tuesdays Challenge - Anything Goes Birthdays.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit 
Hugs to all.

Tilda I coloured with Copics and mounted onto a Nestie No 4 Label I added some stickles at both top and bottom of the mount.
My next stop on the journey was Japan, here is my card

Creative Inspirations #48

Hi all today we have a new challenge for you to try at Creative Inspirations we would love to see you create a Christmas Gift.
Our sponsor for this week is 
our monthly sponsor is Fantastic Ribbons.

Here is my gift I really hope you enjoy looking at pictures because I have loads to show.
I started off with a large plain box which I found while clearing some stuff, it originally held a Molton Brown TSV which I bought a few years ago, I always knew the empty box would come in handy someday, lol.
This is the box with just the papers on which are from Papermania, for the lid I used Silver mirror card.
It took me several days to actually complete the design I knew that I wanted to feature Tilda images, ribbons, gems, flowers and more. 
For the main central image I used my circle cutter for the red mirror card, the wreath is by Meljen Designs, which are available from Whimsy Stamps. The images and wreath have been coloured with Copics.
I added a doily, gems, ticket sentiment, flowers, stickles and butterflies punched from mirror card. 
The next two pictures show the design of the front a little closer.

This next picture shows the top of the box, I got the idea of Tilda sitting proud at the top from one of my blogging buddies, I cannot remember which one so if it was you please let me know so I can thank you for the inspiration.
The ribbon is wide, scrunched in the middle and a bow tied, then I added some gingham ribbon, and flowers.
The lid is rather thick so I could not fit the fastener I wanted so I threaded through some gingham ribbon. 
 The next picture shows one side of the box with another Tilda, butterflies, flowers, die cut mount and a ticket sentiment.  
The next picture shows the other side of the box again using Tilda sitting on top of the calender stamp I also added some more flowers. 
I have some other goodies that will go in the box ready for my mum to open at Christmas. 
Finally one close up picture of Tilda on top. 
I am sure I have missed a few items that I have used like the red ric rac ribbon and gold stars on the wreath, lol. This creation has been in my head for so long, once I found the box I knew I wanted to do something I had never done before.  I had the combined inspiration of so many of you wonderful crafters/blogging buddies I am thrilled to bits with how this turned out I really hope you have enjoyed my pictures and please do come join us in our challenge.

I am entering this gift box into the challenge at C.R.A.F.T - Christmas Present
Big hugs to all see you soon.
