Inky Impressions Challenge - Christmas!!!

Hi!! Today marks my first challenge as a Guest Inkette on Inky Impressions. I am delighted to be on this fabulous team and hope I can provide a little inspiration for my term. 

For the first challenge - Christmas - all of the DT are using the digi "Rachel's Gingerbread Christmas".

I used last year's BG Eskimo Kisses papers  with both red and green cardstock. I coloured my image using copic markers - too many to list, lol. All of my flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

I used MS cornice punch to do the border on along the side of my image. The doily, which is slipped behind the image has been inked with distress ink and stickled with star dust -  I love how the stickles takes in the colour of the distress ink.

The ribbon is by East of India, the reindeer charm is one I picked up at the NEC and as always, I've added some pearls :)

This challenge will run for 2 weeks, so you have until noon (eastern time) on December 14th to play along HERE.

I am entering this card into the ABC Christmas Challenge - Yuletide.

Have a wonderful day!
Stay warm

Very nice Sandie! I just made a card using the same DP. Just love BG. That stamp is huge so I know that coloring probably took some time. Beautifully done.
