A Christmas Carolling

Hello all, I hope you have been enjoying your weekend.  My little girl is on a Beavers outing to Paultons Park today.  Apparently it is a huge gathering of all the beaver groups in the area and around 2,500 are converging there so all I can say is I'm glad I've not picked today to go there!!!.  She hasn't got good weather for it as its piddling down but she'll get wet anyway on the rides.  So as its quiet here at the moment I thought I would take the opportunity of jumping on and showing you the card I have just finished. 

Okay so I've used a Lili of the Valley image all coloured with copics.  The Basic Grey papers 'Jovial' have had another outing I do so love these.  The poinsettia is my usual Marianne Design die and the edges have been inked up with a cherry blossom from WOC in the centre. 

A little side view.  As usual the inside has been decorated to compliment the front. 

Lastly a close up of the adorable image.  I've added glamour dust to the fur trims and snow and added liquid pearls as the falling snow.
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Okay since starting this post my peace has now been shattered as hubby and son are back from their boys outing to the cinema to see Skyfall so no doubt they'll be wanting their tea!!
Enjoy the rest of your day and happy crafting.
Take care.
