Whiff of Joy DT meets Sketch Saturday, Simon Says Stamp and Quixotic Paperie

You will recognise todays card from my little sneak peak earlier and the Whiff of Joy Inspirations and tutorial blog. I finally got my hands on some of these gorgeous Christmas gnomes from Whiff of Joy! I've loved them since they were released and couldn't resist any longer now that all the Christmas stamps are on sale!! I managed to combine 3 challenges with this card which is rare for me! I have used the fabulous sketch over at Sketch Saturday and Simon Says Stamp and Quixotic Paperie challenges both want to see charms on your cards!

All the papers are from Basic Grey Wassail collection and have been torn and distressed with Tea Dye distress ink. The lacey edges have been punched with MS doiley lace punch. The sentiment is a Forever Friends one and has also been stamped with Tea Dye distress ink.
I have coloured Wee with Reindeer with copics and added some gold liquid pearls to the little buttons on her shoes.

The holly embellishment is hand made, please see the Whiff of Joy Inspirations and tutorials blog for details!I have added some satin ribbon from my stash and the star charm is from The Hobby House, hung on some jewellery wire.Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
