Winter Wonderland Challenge ..........

Hi everyone, the challenge at Winter Wonderland this week is a 'One Layer Card'. Now for me this was a real challenge as I don't do the less is more thing very well on my cards! So for my DT card I have stamped a cute Penny Black image and added distress ink all round the edges of my card. I stamped and embossed the swirls and used an embossing powder called Wow. It is holographic and really sparkly. In the end I was really pleased with my card and I used my distress ink pad which has been sat in my draw gathering dust!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sarah Hurley - Snowflakes
Charisma Cardz - Try something new (I used distress inks as my background)
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Animal Crackers
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Winter Wonderland

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs Lynsey x
