Festive Post

Hi everyone,
I hope your weekend is off to a good start! I spent the morning doing some crafting so I have a card to share with you using LOTV's Festive Post (coloured with Inktense pencils). I can't believe it's less than a year since I bought my first Lili of the Valley stamps - I've been colouring quite a few this week and feel as though I've fallen in love with them all over again! I'd like to give credit to two crafters who really inspired some of the details on this card. Firstly, Debra Kenworthy who showed such a gorgeous Christmas card on her blog last week (which you can see here). I absolutely loved the magical effect of her snow-topped fence and I had to give this a go - I used the Magnolia DooHickey Lovely Fence and gesso sprinkled with glitter for my take on it. Secondly, I decided it was about time I gave my neglected texture paste and stencils another outing after seeing all the beautiful ways that Pamellia uses them on her stunning creations - I really wanted to try her technique of adding glitter and have done so on the postcard. Pamellia's attention to detail is absolutely incredible and has inspired me so much to try new things on my cards. Thank you ladies!

I have also used:
Papers (hand-stitched) and sentiment - Maja Design: A Gift for You
Postcard - Lili of the Valley
Roses, rosebuds, pearl flower - Wild Orchid Crafts
Hessian ribbon, lace, twine - Ribbon Girl
Bow - Magnolia DooHickey Groom Bow
Pearls, Tim Holtz Heart Stencil, Pumice Stone Distress Ink - Samuel Taylors

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
