It's Thursday again which means it's time for another LOTV challenge. This week we have a great sketch from Bev and are being sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts which means there are some of their fantastic flowers, gems and lace up for grabs. Do remember though, to be eligible for the prize you MUST use an LOTV image. So why not pop on over to the challenge blog and join in the fun! While you are there check out the other DT's wonderful creations.

As you can see I have gone with my favourite colour of pink for my card this week, although in much darker shades than I would normally choose (anything to be different). I have used one of the new stamps from LOTV called 'Jenny The Bear-Gifts Galore' and coloured it with Promarkers and adding flock to the hat. Having cut the image with Nesties I have edged it with glitter, doing the same with the greeting. The panel behind the image has been embossed with the CB snowflake folder. As I didn't have the right colours for the ribbon at the bottom or the flowers I coloured both of these with my Promarker pen. I finished it off by adding some gems to the flowers. I must admit I like my xmas cards to be untraditional colours rather than the traditional red and green so I really like this on, hope you do too. Thanks for looking.
