Wild Orchid Craft Challenge and Crafters Companion Challenge


Two Challenge Cards for you today firstly:

We have a lovely seasonal theme for you on Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Blog  this fortnight, “CLASSIC CHRISTMAS”  which has given the DT  a chance to show you the awesome Hellebores (Christmas Rose) which goes on sale on the Wild Orchid Crafts website today.  We also have two chances to win on this challenge, Paul and Siri from WOC have put together, this lovely selection of goodies 


The generous Girls at Lili of the Valley are also offering 4 stamps of the winners' choice for a lucky winner

Now on to my DT card for the Challenge


I first saw this awesome Farther Christmas image whilst visiting my dear friend Mina’s blog, she had made a fabulous card using it and I just knew I had to have it!!  The image is one on a set of Downloadable images from Rick St Dennis's etsy shop.  Expect to see more of these images in the near future.

The paper is from the Magnolia Christmas release from Crafts U Love, I have glittered almost everything in sight.    The Flowers and Gems are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the snowflake was Punched with a Martha Stewart Punch.

This adorable image is from Jaynes Nestorenkos  Patchwork Polly Stamp collection from Crafters Companion this little one is called Julie,  she has been cut out and mounted into a Doyley cut with Mariannes Designs die using the Cuttlebug.  The backing papers were printed from the CC SWALK CD1 and I have achieved the perfect colour using the amazing Colouriser feature.  The flowers and Gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the Border has been achived with a Martha Stewart Border Punch.
