CHRISTMAS WISHES.....

Well Saturday's rolled round yet again....i've lost this week somewhere again,LOL...who pinched it!
But it mean's that it's time for another of Jo's fabby sketches over at SKETCH SATURDAY,this week we are sponsored by the Craft Barn and there's a great prize up for grabs for one lucky winner...check out challenge blog for details.
I've gone for another Christmas card and again using the black and white colour combo...alot of my Christmas cards will be along these lines this year.
The tree image is from a Waltzing Mouse stamp set "Nutcracker Sweet"....i've stamped the image twice using a Versamark ink pad and then heat embossed using Sparkle'N' Sprinkle "Guilded Ivory"embossing powder very sparkly IRL.The one image i've glued flat to the card and the second i've raised up using Pinflair glue gel to give alittle dimension to the card.
I've used a Cuttlebug "Snowflake" embossing folder and a Fiskars "Snowflake" border punch.
The sentiment is from a Papermania set.
Ribbon,self adhesive pearls and gems from stash.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:-
ABC CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE.....T is for TREE...
ALLSORTS CHALLENGE...."Plain & Simple".
THE ONE STOP CRAFT CHALLENGE...."Snowflakes in September"
CRAZY 4 CHALLENGES..."Bling".....my sparkly embossing powder.
TOTALLY GORJUSS....Christmas

Well thats about it for today...have a good one whatever you're up to!
Take care
