Live & Love Crafts Challenge DT Card

Helllllooooooooooo..........yes its me & yes its me with a card.........yayyyyyyyyyyyy. Not only a card but a DT card for our super fabulous lady Sandy over at Live & Love Crafts. I'm telling you I have the best DT's that put up with me & boy I am soooooooo thankful to them.

Ok onto my card & onto telling you about the new challenge which is super duper easy......
WITH LOVE easy is that!! It doesn't even have to be a christmas card, as long as its 'With Love' going to that special someone. I of course as I'm soooooooo behind in the crimbo card arena have made a crimbo card.
Mojo is not fully functioning so please be warned my lovelies.........
I have gone for a vintage style card, I just love this image. I also have to tell you I love the clothes they wore back then as well, ooooohhh especially those big ball gown puffy type dresses.

Okie dokie back to the card........lots & lots of yumminess from Live & Love Crafts on here........actually the only thing that isnt from Sandy's shop is the card I've used & the dies lol.
The yummy 'Rusty Heart' which I half covered in 'Snowtex' & a wee bit of 'Gesso'.

I've added some 'Jumbo Pom-Pom' & along the side of the image I added 'Pearl Lace With Beads', its lush. 

The Merry Christmas tag I cut from the Pion Days Of Winter 'Borders' sheet, I inked the edges with walnut distress ink. You can also see the MF 'Doily' sticking out there as well.

The image is from Pion Days Of Winter 'Images' & I added some Shabby White Frantage to it & also lightly flicked Copic Opaque White at it so soften it & make it look like it was snowing, it looks lush IRL. I then place the image onto corrugated card which I covered in Gesso & Snowtex.

Ok so the gorgeous papers I used on this, which you cant really see much of but the recipient will get to see them on the inside lol. Anyway they are Pion Wintertime In Swedish Lapland 'Nisse' (the patterned side) & I also used Pion Days Of Winter 'Church', they go well together I love it when I can mix different collections. Anyway I machine stitched them & added Gesso all around the edge.
I've added lots of different textures on this, well as you can see lol.
For the card shape I used Go -Kreate XXL Square Frame Frilly 7.

All the items used form Live & Love Crafts Store.

Dies used are Magnolia 'Srawling Ferns', Tim Holtz 'Snowflake Border & the cluster of snowflakes are from a Noor Designs die, my favourite snowflake tbh.
You can find the 'Snowflake die here in Noor Designs uk which my lovely blogging friend Tracy runs, pop on over for ALL the Noor designs.

Ok thats it for me, wow that was a long post....sorry peeps lol. Please pop on over to see my super duper talented teamies creations........they will all certainly WOW you.
Hope you will join us in the last challenge of this year...........yes I only realised that one just this second lol.

Take care lovelies, thank you sooooooooooo much for all your lovely comments its great to be back & thank you for stopping by & putting up with me again ;0)
