I have made this card by using Paisley Positive Enamel Glazed card from Kanban CRD8185 for the main card. The stamp is from Papermania. This image has been mounted on to Black Satin card and has been coloured with Promarkers and glittered in places with Sakura Glitter pens. It is an A6 card and the plus colour I have chosen is of course yellow.
I know the image is probably more appropiate for Easter than Christmas time but I just fancied doing it. Lol!!!
I do hope you enjoy entering this 2nd challenge.
This one is made with bp from Google and put through MCS. Image is also from Google and printed on Satin Photo Paper - mounted on to silver Mirri Card. Sentiment is from my stash.

This first card I have used for the bp "Contemporary Christmas Colossal Paper Pack" 8 x 8 from Papermania. This has been matted onto Silver Mirri Card. The next layer I have also matted onto Silver Mirri card a blue pearlised card put through the Cuttlebug with a Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder. I have used a black ink pad with detail clear embossing powder to stamp the Snow Choir image. This jolly stamp is from Creative Expressions HH912K. The image has been watercoloured with Twinkling H20's. I have also picked out the snowman and snow with Polar White from the Diamond Range Flower Soft.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look today and your comments are appreciated. I am being very naughty this week as we went out with friends for a meal last night and I am going out again tomorrow with one of my Craft Clubs for our Christmas meal so bang goes the diet again this week. Hope you all keep well until I blog again.

Ann is a very talented lady and has created many digi stamps and backing papers which can be found on her site.
This A5 card has been produced by using The Royal Horticultural Society Collection CDROM from Joanna Sheen. This is a 3 disc set. Both the image and backing paper have come here and are from Disc 1 and is taken from the Caroline Maria Applebee section. She was born in London in 1799 and appears to have been the daughter of a wealthy middle-class family that had conservatories and greenhouses. Very little is known about Miss Applebee. It is believed she was a talented amateur artist whose work were unpublished. Her paintings feature a large range of plants, including the more rare exotic varieties of the day, that would only survive under glass. I have used Stardream card for the main card and also a contrasting colour for the matting and layering card, both have been embossed around the edges on a scoreboard. The bow is from my stash. The pearls on four corners of the topper are also from my stash and are Crystal Stickers by Mark Richards - Style # 1952 size 5mm.
I hope you can join in the fun and this challenge lasts for two weeks, details on Ann's blog. For this first challenge Ann is offering a prize for one lucky person. The winner will receive any 5 digi stamps and 5 backing paper collection of their choice. Currently there are 12 backing paper collections and 18 digi stamps - although there will most likely be more to choose from by the time the winner is announced. You can check out what you might win on the pages at the top of the blog, and they are of course available to purchase at Crafty Ann's now.
