OSAAT - Challenge #35

Hi Everyone,
We've got another great challenge for you this week over at One Stitch at a Time Challenge blog. Its a great challenge this week:

Embellish it with you favourite things 

For this challenge we are being sponsored by the fantastic Joanna Sheen. Why not pop over to her shop and have a browse through her brilliant goodies and always a place that I visit for flat backed pearls and my other favourite embellies.

The wonderful image I used is Christmas Door by Gingerloft and is available from the Stitchy Bear and I Did It Creations Crafting Boutique.  I thought the image was so nice and had such great detail that I wanted to keep the card as simple as possible.  I have coloured the image with pale coloured pro markers only to give just a hint of colour.

I have embellished my card with glitter and card candy - two of my favourite things.   The glitter (which I've dotted on as snow) shows up better in "real life" than it does on the picture.  I used a Sizzix die to cut the holly leaves and some copper coloured card candy as my holly berries.

So, I can't wait to see what you make for our challenge and don't forget to have a look at the other DT blogs - they've come up with some great ideas for this challenge!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

A spoonful of sugar - Winter Wonderland
Little Red Wagon - Use something old and something new.  New is my digi image and my holly die is about 10 years old and it is the first time I've used it in about 5 years!
If the shoe fits - pick a holiday (Christmas)
Paper Cutz - Anything Goes
Craftalicious - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by,

That is a great image - haven't seen it before. Lovely card too - the image doesn't need much colour to bring it to life, and you've done that hint of colour very well.
