Another sneaky little Christmas card!

Good morning all

It's challenge day for me again at 

Winter Wonderland
(another chance to make another card for the Christmas pile!)

our theme this week is 

Punches and Dies
add a charm
- always an easy one

using Well wrapped up from The Paper Shelter
available here

We are being sponsored this week by 

a real favourite of mine 
(I've been on the DT for years!!)

The thing I like best about the images you get at TPS is that there are always line drawings, coloured versions and matching papers for each image and that gives you great choice when it comes to making projects.
For my card I decided to take the quick and easy option and use the precoloured image and matching paper to layer up, I fussy cut around the image and went around the image and the paper edges with gathered twigs DI then I mounted her with 3d glue gel, added some die cuts to embellish and a liberal slathering (don't you just love that word!!) of glitter jewels over the dies - and voila a quick and easy card!!  There are a certain number of images from TPS that really work well for this method and the image just stands out so well on the card, I really like the effect.

This is what I did....

Image and papers - well wrapped up from TPS
Dies snowflake border - memory box
        tree - mariannes
        winter words - by tim holtz for sizzix 
Glitter jewels  from creative expressions
Distress ink - gathered twigs from Tim Holtz

Hope you'll join in with us at Winter Wonderland Challenge this week
