Challenge me a Christmas Card - Holly Jolly

Last year my friend Michelle Lupton asked me if I wanted to play in her .....

I had so much fun last year that I didn't hesitate when she asked me to play again this year. Our theme for the post today was "Holly Jolly" which was open to lots of interpretation. I chose to use this gorgeous image called "Christmas Mouse" from Whimsy Stamps. He was a freebie on the Whimsy Stamps Facebook page and I just couldn't wait to colour him up. By framing him with some die cut Holly I managed to fulfill the challenge brief. I can't wait to see how Michelle interpreted the challenge - you can pop over and check out Michelle's post with me :)

Aurora Wings Challenge #73

It's time to showcase my card for the latest challenge over at Aurora Wings Challenges. This time our theme is.....

Image may contain: text

I've used the absolutely STUNNING Christmas Mermaid for my card. She has a sea based Christmas tree to pop her gift under with a fishing net tree and a star fish topper. And of course pearls are the perfect decoration along with 'sea glass' rhinestones (OK that last was a stretch but at Christmas who cares LOL).
I've also made her shimmer as if she's wet by using a glitter gel pen. You can see it better in this picture - it looks lovely under lights along with the gold glitter and sparkle from the rhinestones!
