A lovely colour challenge at MAWTT this week

Good morning all

Hope you are all nice and cozy and warm where you are!  I've had to schedule this post as I'm out for the day - so that I can be cozy and warm too!!  We are having a power cut for the whole of today because there are faults on the overhead lines and they are repairing it - I suppose its better done now than no electricity in the power surge on Christmas day.  But I had really wanted a day at home just to organise things - I only just finished work for the holidays and was looking forward to a nice quiet day in - never mind!

Anyway I won't be around much over the next couple of days while this is going on - but I'll try to do some visiting tomorrow evening.

This week we have a pretty colour challenge at 

antiqued bouquet

 I was determined to make a Christmas card for this card and it caused me a bit of a headache deciding what to do as its definitely non traditional Christmas colours and I just couldn't get my head round it at all

I used a LOTV precoloured image that I had left over from last year
- it was supposed to be a quick and easy card - not that it turned out that way - my cards are never quick ....or easy - I'm too much of a faffer - a northern England  word perhaps but says it all !!

Sorry about the odd unbalanced photo - but how else was I going to get that bow in!!

Heres what I did....

Image LOTV precoloured - fur cones
Papers - MME Santa Claus, and lost and found -Christmas found
Distress ink - TH dust rose
Mistletoe and pine cone dies - Marianne
Square die - spellbinders
corner dies - dienamics
Kraft card - MFT
Diamond stickles
Sentiment tags - LOTV
Ribbon - Sam Pooles Creative studios

It's the last challenge of the year at MAWTT and you have until 31st December to enter - we'd love to see these pretty colours in your cards this week
