Getting Sentimental With LOTV

Hello and thanks for dropping by. Today I have a christmas card to show you which I've been making for the past week and have now finally finished.

I used an image from one of my stack of LOTV die cut sheets which are no longer available and the sentiment is a LOTV christmas grungy stamp. The papers are Kaisercraft and Jennifer Ellory and the die is Marianne Creatables LR0180. The gold peel-off corner, pearls and ribbon are from my stash and finally I added 3 tiny punched snowflakes to which I'd added Stickles. I love using pearls, ribbons and die-cuts to embellish my cards because of the variety of colours and styles you can get.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
LOTV's Ideas To Inspire challenge 'Use a Sentiment'
Lili's Little Fairies challenge 'Easy As 1 2 3'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Recipe - 3 snowflakes, 2 papers, 1 image'
As You Like It challenge 'Favourite 3 Embellishments and Why'
Divas By Design challenge 'Pretty Pearls'
CraftyHazelnut's Christmas challenge 'All Wrapped Up'
Simon Says challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Dies, Dies, Dies' (my 3rd entry)
