Editted to say: Sorry this post is so late, I forgot to schedule it and was very tired yesterday.

Here we go with another challenge from Lili Of The Valley. This week we want to see a few of your favourite things used on your projects. It could be stamps, papers, embellishments, in fact anything that you love. Don't forget though to be eligible for the prize of a £10.00 LOTV voucher that you MUST use an LOTV image.

For my card I have followed the sketch but I have turned and lengthened it. I have used one of my favourite LOTV Christmas stamps and coloured her with Promarkers (another favourite) and added flock to her muff. The background was coloured with chalk. I decided to put her behind a frame which I cut with Nesties and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder before attaching with foam pads to lift it. The strip going down the centre has been punched with my new MS snowflake border punch. The small snowflakes in the corners are the waste from the border punch and I have added tiny star gems to the centres. The papers I have used have also become firm favourites of mine. I'm not sure if this is vintage or old fashioned enough, what do you think? Anyway, I hope you like it, thanks for looking.
