Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 44 - My challenge!!

Hello!!  Hope you have had a good week, can you believe it's only 7 weeks to Christmas...eek!!!

So good timing for this weeks Ladybug Crafts Ink challenge which this week has been set by ME!!!I would like to see your Christmas cards, but I would like to see them in non-traditional colours and/or you can distress them.  Which should (hopefully!) give you plenty of scope!

I have to say the rest of the Ladybugs have really excelled themselves this week, so if you have time why not stop on by their blogs and have a closer look?

Whithout further ado, here's my card... 


Not Christmas papers at all I got a new 6x6 MME Lost and Found Portobello Road pad the other day, and fell in love with these designs.  The glorious lace is from LCI, just love this as it's in such a neutral shade that looks stunning with pretty much everything.  The charm, velvet ric rac, and buttons are from my stash, and the Jenni Bowlin pin is adorable - so blingy!


I just love this image, it's a dream to colour and takes a great bit of sparkle so well!!  And this is the stamp of the month for November, Nikki andButtercup Building a Snowman and that means that it is half price, so don't delay on getting yours really quick for 50% off - that's £3.50!!  What an absolute bargain!!

Please may I enter these challenges

Craft Your Passion - Bingo (Distress, Ribbon, Bling)
Gingerloft - Bingo (buttons, DP, Glitter)


I really hope you are able to play along this week, thanks for stopping by

I love so much about this card - but mainly how the newsprint and glitter come together. It feels like "opposites attract" or something.
