Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge

This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 115: anything goes with a twist ...  on the ... day of Christmas ... Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in the challenge.

I used one of the Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet images from their 12 days of Christmas digital set, colouring with spectrum noir pens.

I used an A5 tent style card part covered with some green glitter DCWV paper adding some Poundland flowers with pearls. The die cut music at the top was cut with a Die'sire die - Christmas carol. I'm disappointed that this die will only seem to cut through thin paper rather than thin card. I tried a piece of card quite a few times and couldn't get a good result and I had an additional metal shim in the eBosser sandwich. Nevermind, I got there by using a piece of pearlised red paper. I used a couple of pieces of silver glitter trim where the papers were joined, adding a flower to hide the fact that I'd used two snippet pieces because I didn't have a long enough piece.

  19. Hi Hazel,
    We've been trying to send through your Winner's Badge from the Country View Challenges August theme, Summertime. Owing to a computer meltdown, the badges were lost and had to be re-created, so apologies for the delay. Unfortunately both email addresses we've tried have bounced back. Please would you contact us at Country View Challenges to let us know where to send the badge if you would like it.
    Many thanks and best wishes,
    Alison for the Country View Challenges DT
