Lili Of The Valley and Fridays Sketchers Challenge

Well a double up for me today, this ticks the box as a Christmas card for the super wonderful smashing super fandabulously wonderwonkerful Lili of The Valley challenge (can you tell I won last week! LOL) and I have used this Friday Sketchers challenge sketch for inspiration: I have sliced into yet more of my new Doodlebug papers for this one.....ohhhh it makes you sweat doesn't it cutting into things that we just want to look at and stroke! I have a new mantra though and it seems to be working "I will cut and use the 4 billion pieces of paper in my craft room that I'm saving because they're favorites....I will cut and use the 4 billion pieces of paper in my craft room that I'm saving because they're favorites...." try it, it works for a while.......LOL I know that most of you will be the same! I have used a LOTV die cut reindeer and my new argyle Christmas paper. The scallop is done with a Doodlebug glitter trim and the greeting is by Craftwork cards. Finally the scroll/flourish is a QK die which I have built up to make bigger and added red gems to the ends to highlight. . This was one of the cards that I wasn't quite sure where it was going but it seemed to pull together in the end!
