Whiff of Joy Christmas Card

Morning! I'm so excited today, as regular visitors will now I have had a large extension added to my house, this includes a new lounge. Ever since I was very small I've wanted a stone fireplace because I just love anything old and medieval looking.....we splashed out and ordered one for our new lounge 6 weeks ago (it is dug out of the quarry to order who cool is that!) and it is being delivered today!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I know that is not exciting news for you all but I just can't wait to see it!
Anyway....onto my card. Remember my sketch on the Whiff of Joy challenge a couple of weeks ago? Well this was the first attempt at my sketch which I wasn't too happy with so made the other one for the actual DT post. This one just didn't go to plan somehow!
I've used the beautiful Willow with Gingerbread heart (yes her gingerbread is green...I thought it was a present when I coloured it then saw the name of the stamp LOL)
The gorgeous rose is from Hobby Craft, spritzed with glimmer mist of course! the snowflakes have been punched with a MS punch, distressed with antique linen and covered in glitter. I added a touch of twine and some pearl pins behind the rose too.
Peeping from behind the image is a tag with another snowflake.....
.....and on the other side of the tag is Willow with stocking. The sentiment is also from the Whiff of Joy winter kit. I have stamped the snowflakes from the winter kit on the backgrounds of the images and the sentiment with pale blue Qchalk but you can only just see them in the picture.
Finally a view of the whole card opened out. Thanks for looking and enjoy your day! x
