Best Friends

Well, after all my whingeing yesterday, you'll be glad to hear that I'm much happier with today's card! As soon as I saw this image from LOTV, I knew I just had to have it, it's just soooo sweet! Trouble was I'd been trying to watch the pennies, so you can imagine my delight when I won an LOTV voucher at Divas By Design! Into my basket it went, along with a couple of others & here is my first card using it. After my mistake with all the white on my last card, I used some distress ink around the card edge, image & sentiment & I am really happy with the result. I didn't have any flowers resembling poinsettias & so I printed out an image from Google, coloured it with promarkers, layered it up & added some tiny yellow beads. For the berries I punched out some tiny circles, coloured them with a red Promarker & added some glossy accents. I also coloured the silver snowflake with a gold Promarker (they do come in handy!). I'm even happy with the photo, wonders will never cease!!

Image - 'Teddy With Penguin' - LOTV coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - Docrafts Daisy & Dandelion
'Fosted Lace' Stickles on snow & penguin's hat
Papers & ribbon from stash
Snowflake charm - The Hobby House from J & C Creations
Dies/punches used: Spellbinders 'Classic Ovals' & 'Floral Ovals', Memory Box 'Frostyville Border' & Cheery Lynn 'Deco Corner' & a Woodware holly leaf punch
