Sing us a Song at Charisma

 Hello again :-) I'm back with my DT post for Charisma Cardz - please scroll down for my MAWTT post earlier today - thanks.
WOW we had sooooooooooooooooooo many gorgeous entries last week - so glad it wasn't me that had to pick a Top3!!!

Anyways onto this week and the lovely Sally has picked the theme:


We have two fab sponsors this week:


please pop over to the challenge blog for the full details of the prizes

So here's my take on the theme:
 And of course my song is:
'Oh Christmas Tree'
I took inspiration for my card from the 'Make A Scene' challenge at Penny Black Saturday this week.
I started by stamping the snowflake all over the base card with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with clear EP. Then I tore a mountain shape into some copy paper and used this as a mask when I inked over the snowflakes with Tumbled Glass DI.
I stamped the PB Starlit 4105J image with Black Archival ink and  then heat embossed with Lapis Pearl EP - embossing with this EP over black gives a green hue - which ]doesn;t really show on the photo the same as it does IRL :-(

I added the little hedgie with his tree (from The Wonder clear set) in the opposite corner and if course all winter skies should have Santa and his sleigh (from Best Day clear set).
To finish I added a touch of sparkle to the snowflakes and aaround the edge of the mat and layer.
Stamped sentiment - LOTV.

PBSC - Make a Scene
The Paper Shelter - Embossing
The Paper Variety - Use Stamps on your Projects
Your Next Stamp - Song Inspiration
