The theme this week on Cute Card Thursday is 'Simply Charming' - to add a charm to your creation. Our sponsor for this challenge is Katherina from Whiff of Joy who is offering the winner a choice of stamp from her collection.
As I wasn't able to do much detailed colouring on Tuesday when I was putting this card together, it's primarily a mix of paper and diecuts. The one little extra is the little stamped deer from Eline's winter stamp set that I fussy cut out yesterday to add in the bottom corner. The red background paper is from Eline's winter huis pretty paper bloc and I've matted with ivory and green card, added a length of red lace and green gross grain ribbon, then cut a circle out of an old Papermania Xmas pad that had the greeting and fixed to the doily circle die cut. The little holly sprig charm I've had for years so that's finally come in useful! and to embellish I've used what is probably my favourite Marianne die - the mini poinsettias, with a close runner up being the holly sprig.
Here's the list of Marianne dies:
mini poinsettia - LR0142
holly sprig - LR0244
snowflake - CR1225
round doily - LR0168
It just so happens that Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge this week is 'deer, deer' so I hope that my one little fawn will be enough to let me join in. The Christmas Card challenge is to use diecuts, and the ABC Christmas challenge are on to Y - for your favourite die .. .. the mini poinsettias of course! And the Divas by Design challenge is for red on your creation this week - so here's mine.
