Figgy Pudding - Eclectic Ellapu Challenge # 6

Thank God for Scheduled posts lol :).
Good Morning everyone, well it's Sunday and that means it's time for Challenge #6 over at Eclectic Ellapu.
The very talented Abigail has chosen this weeks theme "Layering/Openable/Interactive". I decided to go with a Christmas card using this gorgeous "LOTV" stamp.

I have paper pieced part of the image and coloured the rest with my promarkers: Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon, Crimson, Burgundy, Forest Green, Emerald Green, Blush, Cool Grey 1 to 5, Satin and Dusky Pink. I highlighted their cheeks with my white gel pen.

I have added lots of layers of scraps of old Christmas papers to this card, edging all the layers with my Diamond Stickles.

I also have a hidden sentiment tag hidden behind the stamped image. This is found by gently pulling the bow and charms to the side. The sentiment used on the tag is by Penny Black. The ribbon, charms and buttons are all from my stash.

I also decorated the inside of the card with matching papers.
Why not pop over to our blog and check out my fellow purple teamies creations, they will knock your socks off.
Thanks for looking :).
