This week at Lili Of The Valley we would like to see your 'Untraditional' Christmas cards and we are being kindly sponsored by Lili Of The Valley who are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their webshop. Please remember, to be eligible for the prize you MUST use an LOTV image. The DT have made some fabulous cards in all sorts of untraditional colours so why not pop on over to the blog and have a peek.

For my card I have used the colours beige and jade and the LOTV stamp called 'Sledging With Daddy' from the new Christmas range. I have used Promarkers and chalk to colour the image and added white peel-off snowflakes. Following the sketch (which I turned) I punched some borders to create a zig zag down the side. The flowers and leaves have been punched from coordinating papers with pearls added to the centres. To finish off I have added a few more pearls in two corners. Thanks for looking.

Card Recipe

Stamp - LOTV
Paper - DCWV (Linen Closet)
