Christmas at MAWTT

Good morning. This week over at 

we are celebrating Christmas early as our lovely leader Hazel has picked the theme


Our sponsor this week is the fab 
Bugaboo Stamps
and they are offering 1 lucky winner 
7 images of their choice

The Dt were lucky enough to get some images to work with and I chose 
'Girlz Winter' - available here

I'm loving making these mini circular cards and for this one I used the smallest of the Grand Nesties large scalloped circles for the card base.

Image coloured with FM's and lashings of Diamond Ice Stickles

I created the background using Spellbinders M-Bossabilities 'Whimsy' folder and then sponged it with some white acrylic paint.
When the paint had dried I went over the embossed details with Diamond Ice Stickles - it is super sparkly IRL
Sentiment - Creative Expressions - stamped and heat embossed and then cut into strips and the edges inked  using Flexmarker.

So that's what I did - please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of my lovely DT buddies - you won't be disappointed.
Hope you can join us this week - at least you will have then made a start on your Christmas cards :o)

Bearly Mine - Embossing
Crafty Sentiments - Use a Digi
Digital Tuesday - Distressed
Incy Wincy - Digis Only
