What an Adorable Trio

 Good morning. When I saw the theme for this week's LOTV challenge I just knew I had to enter and I knew just what Design Paper I wanted to use - it was a freebie from a craft magazine at least 2 if not 3 years ago - there were about 4 sheets and this is almost my last little piece :-(

I also wanted to use one of my new LOTV Christmas images - I was very lucky to have won a challenge at  Hanna & Friends recently and won a LOTV £10 gift voucher - thank you ladies :-)

I decided to watercolour the image using Distress Inks for a softer feel and I am quite pleased with the result.

I used a Creative Expressions Mica Mask - Delicate and embossed some textured cardstock for my base layer. Snowflakes die cut from co-ordinating glitter card - using my favourite cuttlebug snowflake die and layered with a Martha Stewart snowflake punched from some Rainbow Shimmer card.
Sentiment - LOTV topped with a mini punched snowflake.
A few adhesive pearls and gems to finish it off.

I love how this card has turned out - and I don't very often say that about my own cards :-)

Challenges I would like to enter:
LOTV - Aqua, White and Glitter
Hanna and Friends - Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet - Things with Wings
Samuel Taylors - Christmas Card using rubber stamp
Flutterby Wednesday - Anything Goes (to include butterfly, fairy or angel)
Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Dies/Punches
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Sketch
Stampin for the Weekend - What  A Cutie

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.

Hi Debs, Gorgeous card! Love this sweet LOTV image and pretty colour combo.

Sorry I haven't visited your blog lately ... I work more days now and have been busy with DT cards so haven't had as much time for commenting.

Hope you and the family are all well.
