Animal Antics at Winter Wonderland

Good morning everyone,
I have my first Christmas card of the year to share with you today and it's for our new challenge at Winter Wonderland: Animal Antics. I've used:
Image (Skating Fun - coloured with Inktense pencils), sentiment - Lili of the Valley
Papers (hand-stitched) - Maja Design: Vintage Winter Basics (via LLC)
Ribbon, lace, paint dabber - Ribbon Girl
Cheesecloth - Live and Love Crafts
Flowers, stamens - Wild Orchid Crafts
Memo pin (with added paint) - Tim Holtz
Bottle, pin, wooden snowflakes (covered with a mixture of Chunky White Frantage and Silver Tinsel embossing powder) - from my stash 
(I've added some Snow-Tex to the flowers, bottle and sentiment)





























































We have a fantastic prize on offer from Wild Rose Studio who have generously sponsored us with three stamps for the lucky winner!


We're back to Christmas projects only now so if you want to make a head start on your Christmas crafting we would love to see you at the Winter Wonderland blog! You'll find some gorgeous inspiration there from my teammates.

I'm entering the following challenge:
Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - Cute Critters

Thank you for stopping by - your comments mean so much to me!

Have a lovely weekend.


Rebecca.
