Merry Kissmas!


For some reason I always leave my husband's Christmas card 'til last ... and usually until the last minute too!! This year I managed to make it yesterday, which is pretty good going for me lol!! I also like to "save " it and not post it on here until at least Christmas Eve just in case he should happen to peek!
Anyhow, here is my romantic card for him .... I'm actually pretty pleased with it this year, mainly because I think this image is so gorgeous and these Magnolia papers are just fabulous!


I would like to enter this for the following challenges:

ABC Challenge - K is for Kissing
Creative Card Crew #41 - Anything Goes (second entry)
Stamp Something - Holiday Somethings (second entry)
Corrosive Challenges #43 - Blingy (hope the sparkly snow, green gems and Twinkling H2)'s are enough lol!)

Here's an angle shot to show the glimmer and gleam .... I coloured both the cute meece's clothes and my mistletoe with Twinkling H2O's ....


Luckily I had enough paper to make a bit of an effort with the inside .....


... and here's a closeup of the mistletoe image inside the card.



Recipe:
Stamps: main image - Gillian Roberts "Mistletoe and Mice" coloured with watercolour pencils and Twinkling H2O's, and decorated with polar white Flowersoft and glamour dust; mistletoe - Elusive Images, heat embossed wtih silver detail powder and coloured with Twinkling H2O's;
Sentiments: Ezybells (front); Elusive Images (inside) - both heat embossed with detail silver powder;
Papers: Magnolia "Under the Mistletoe" collection;
Supplies: silver ribbon, siilver holographic card, pearls and green gems from my stash;
Tools: Nestabilities "Labels One"; Fingerguard trimmer "deckle" blade; lettering cut using Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet;


So with that it's time to say

Merry Christmas
&
Happy New Year
