3 in 1

Hi everybody
Hope you have had a lovely weekend. I went to a Copic workshop yesterday run by Stamps & Memories of Kintbury, met a lovely bunch of like-minded crafters. We had some fun and learnt a lot from Karen and Wendy. Thank you ladies. Now I have to decide whether I am going to invest in Copics. My guess is that I will eventually.

So on to the challenges I am entering this card into.
Dutch Dare Challenge - Christmas in August
Winter Wonderland - the theme is By Candle light
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - and the theme is ......... Christmas in August!

The image is Willow with Lantern, and is coloured with Prisma pencils. I have used various backing papers from my stash, including two from the Figgy Pudding range from last year. The snowflakes are cut out with a Martha Stewart punch, and covered in Diamond Dust. However the twinkle does not show up in the photo. The flourishes are punched with a Paper Shaper punch.

Stamps - Whiff of Joy, Stampin' Up
Papers - Basic Grey and from stash
Punches from the Hobby House

Thanks for stopping by.
