Anything goes at Marianne Design Divas

 Hello!  I have a little Christmas card to share with you today for the Marianne Design Divas challenge of anything goes - so a nice easy one for you to show off your Marianne Design goodies.  Our sponsor is Nicki at Bunny Zoe's crafts with a £15 voucher to spend on Marianne Design goodies in her shop, and a second prize from Marianne Design - do stop by the blog to read all about it and see the stunning creations from the rest of the design team.

I just made a card, not feeling too inspired at the moment but I was pleased with how it turned out.  The base card is a small scallop square that I've turned to make a tend fold opening.  I've stamped little Daisy Pirouette and the trees from the Winter scenery for my image, then coloured with my Copics before cutting her out to fit my pretty mat. I've dusted the trees with loose glitter (not safe to use Stickles over Copic pens I've found as they make the colour bleed).  I have used crystal Stickles with a finger to go over the die cut elements so my card has lots of festive sparkle - here it is:

Here's the list of Marianne Design goodies I used on my card:

Paper pad Scandinavian Winter PB7040
stamp Daisy Pirouette DDS3336
Don and Daisy Winter scenery DDS3331
fancy mat for image CR1249
mini poinsettias LR0142
swirls snipped from LR0112
holly leaves, baubles and snowflake COL1363

I'm managing to find time to browse some blogs whilst waiting for doctors to call on Mum, and have discovered my pc will work for about 3 hours before the internet connection slows to a halt, so I'm thinking that something must be overheating.  The solution is I have to switch off for a couple of hours and then try again .. .. mind you, weekends are still an impossibility!  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will come and join in our Marianne Design Divas challenge and show off your MD goodies.
