Red white and green Christmas

It’s Lili of the Valley challenge day today, and this week we have a fab challenge for you all – perfect to get those Crimbo cards done :)  I am loving the traditional look for Christmas cards – can’t beat it I don’t think so I really loved this challenge, and Angelic Harp from Lili of the Valley just fitted in with this colour combo perfect I think.  She is just so beautiful, but then every stamp in these new releases are :)

I used papers from the Memory Box Mistletoe paper pack left over from last year.  It’s still one of my favourite paper packs.  The gorgeous charm started life as a Marianne Designs Creatables  Bell die that I shrank down to a dinky little charm size – love it!  I have a video planned for this weekend showing how I did it for those that are interested.  The poinsettia has been blinged up to the nines with home-made glimmer mist and gold German Glass Glitter.  The gold snowflake charm has been used as a spacer to dangle my little bell charm from.  All embellies including the doily and corner metal embellishment are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

  28. Your card is truly amazing, Bev; these new stamps from LOTV are so pretty and ethereal looking. I particularly like the angel ones for this reason and your treatment of it is just perfect- the clouds are so real. I'll be very interested in seeing your video on shrinking the bell die as I have that one.
