Light Source From a Lantern

Hi Peeps,

Well I did have my card ready last week but because of the grim winter weather I couldn't get a decent photo so I waited until the weekend, but was so busy that I didn't get round to posting it.  This is my DT card for Make It Colourful with the theme of "light source from a lantern" .  I have used Magnolia images which I actually purchased last year and never got round to inking, think were all guilty of this,  and complimented the card with snowflake chipboard pieces and a swirly corner, both available from Make It Crafty. I embossed them with silver embossing powder and they really come out looking very metallic.



I used my favourite Poinsetta Die from Marianne Designs and cut it out using some flock paper and it embossed lovely, so it has a lovely soft texture.


I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

My Time to Craft - Two of something (two stamps)
Oldie but a goodie - Let it snow
Shopping our stash - Use a stamp you haven't inked before
Pile it on just- Traditional Christmas
Just Magnolia - Black, grey, red & white (I have used all these colours in my colouring)
Stamptacular - Punch it
