LOTV Challenge

Ahhhh yes! Time for a fun new challenge at the LOTV Challenge Blog!!!! Whooo Hoo! This time the theme is Red, Green and White and an optional theme of Christmas!!! Just in time for everyone getting their recent orders!

I have been waiting to use this gorgeous stamp for soooo long. It is called "Little Festive Robins".  I thought the sentiment was perfect for the image since it is their little birdie home! haha! I am entering this card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge where the theme is "Things With Wings".

I colored this one with Prisma Pencils and used the Sparkly Technique to glam it up.  You can find a quick tutorial on this technique that I did HERE.  

The papers are from the amazing Nitwits Collection and are called Simple Joys.  I can't seem to get enough of these paper right now.  They are all so perfect for the sweet LOTV stamps!!!!!

The Guipure Lace, Flat backed pearls, and poinsettia are all fromWild Orchid Crafts.  Be sure to check in with them now and then because right now I saw today an amazing sale on some Ivory Roses!!! I love to use ivory and think it is a really great deal.  Also, they have these wonderful new brads that are a must have.

Please check out all of the design team's work.  They are some very talented ladies! I also hope you will join in on our challenge.  I can't wait to see what you guys do with this theme!

Thank you for stopping by to visit me! It makes my day when you do!

  17. this is one stunning card, It looked a bit difficult to colour so I did not buy it, you have made such a good job of it. and I love these papers

  18. This is gorgeous. I love the stamp you have used.

  19. Stunningly gorgeous card - MUST get on with my Xmas cards..... soon.... LOL

  20. Love this card and that stamp so much hun, the colours remind me of candy canes and spearmint rock from the seaside, if i were you and you loved that stamp as much as i do, after Christmas i wouldn't ink up the stockings and colour the birds different, like blue with a tinge of yellow to make them blue tits and Ivy is around all year, use the stamp all year round, just incorporate different colours and papers and it'll work, but i'm guessing you've probably already thought of that too, sorry, LOL xxx Vick

  21. A great card with the outdoors Christmas theme. The birds' colours you chose work perfectly with the rest of the card and the choice of papers from this Collection were just right!

  22. I love anything with birds and this is just sooooo pretty! Love the sparkle you added, def. festive!
