Hello, Lovely blogger friend's.

 Today is the final challenge of 2016 over on The Ribbon Girl challenge blog.
Our challenge theme is................ANYTHING GOES - USE ANY IMAGE
There are 3 wonderful prizes up for grabs! More details can be found at the end of my post.

I have made another Christmas card.
I used 'A Time To Care' rubber stamp from Lili Of The Valley which is now only available as a digi stamp.
I stamped the image with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock and cut out the image using a CartUs circle.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils and matted the finished image onto a Spellbinders stately circle.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design 'A Vintage Romance' Papers.
Other dies used are; Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration and Ivy circle.
Spirit Of Christmas snowflake border, Joy crafts Ice crystal circle, Winter sentiment and Christmas trees. Cheery Lynn pine branches.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.
