Toasting Marshmallows

Hello all, I'm running a bit late today as I've been out at my Dad's. My aunt and cousin came for a visit and we had a lovely time especially when my dad and aunt were recounting tales of their childhood in the 1920's (they are both in their 90's)

Anyway, onto my DT card for the challenge over at Paper Crafting Journey. This fortnight we are sponsored by 'The Paper Shelter' who are offering the lucky winner a $20 gift certificate so just think of all the goodies you can buy with that. The theme for this challenge is 'Case A Card' and I know that may put some of you off, but when you think about it most of us gain inspiration from all those fantastic cards out there. Just remember to include a link to the card you have cased.

I picked a card made by Merkkari one of the DT at The Paper Shelter.  She has lots of wonderful cards to see, so why not drop by her blog Korttimmari to take a look. You can see the card I cased here and this is my take on it.

This is what I used ~
Image -  The Paper Shelter 'Marshmallow for a christmas elf'
Papers -  Milton & Co christmas (a magazine freebie)
Dies -  QuicKutz nesting frame 14
       Die-namics Picket fence
                                               Marianne Creatables LR0136 tree,  LR0111 swirl
From my stash - Pearls and snowflake charm (all from the Hobby House) and ribbon

I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Hobby House challenge 'Pearls'
Lothian Crafts challenge 'Must use Marianne Design dies'
The Crafty Bloggers Network challenge 'Christmas'
The Paper Shelter challenge 'Winter fun'
