St Luke's Mid Month Inspiration

It's time for a little more inspiration for our month long challenge over at St Luke's Charity Cards Challenge which this month is a buffet.  You can make any card you like but you have to include 4 things from a list of 10 - check out the blog to see the whole list.  We have a great set of Waltzingmouse stamps as a prize this month so do join the fun!

This is a mini card - just 3 x 3 inches, which is the requirement for this weeks' CASual Friday challenge, so I am also entering this card into their challenge.  The four items I choose from our buffet were pattern papers, embossing, punches (die cut) and gems.

The patterned paper is from an old DCVW Christmas Stack and then I used a snowflake embossing folder on some blue mirri card and used these to create my background.  I stamped one of the christmas baubles from the Waltzingmouse Vintage Ornaments set onto silver mirri using stazon ink and cut it out with the corresponding nestie.  I popped this up on foam pads and finished with 3 blue gems.

Don't forget to check out the challenge for a chance to win - you still have a couple of weeks to play and remember our blog is a little different - we play for charity, so if you can spare the card you enter (or any other handmade card) then just post it to us at the address on the sidebar of the challenge site and we'll sell it for the charity at a local fayre.

Thanks for visiting :-)
