The challenge at Winter Wonderland this week was a Christmas Buffet,  where we were offered a smorgasbord of patterened paper, 1 charm, ribbon, snowflakes, buttons/gemstones or brads, and from that list we had to choose three.  I chose patterened paper, a button and ribbon.

The past two weeks I had done very cutesy cards, this week I wanted to get away from that and try something with a vintage feel.   The image I used is actually a colouring book image that I found on this site.  Aren't they just gorgeous!  Incredibly detailed, and quite challenging to colour with copics when scaled down to a size suitable for cards, but the end result was worth it I think.  I took the 'christmas buffet' theme a step further and chose an image that suited that theme also :)

The patterned paper is Basic Grey, Dasher, which you can download digitally from their site here.  The tag that I used is included in their Dasher Starter Kit.

The card has a half flap on the front, so the centre back of the card shows.  I'm new to card making so I am not sure what that style is called?  I felt it suited the narrow image I had chosen nicely though.  The card is finished with a sprinkle of glitter, one button with a teensy bit of ribbon.

I had a look through all the challenge entries this week, the quality is simply stunning!  Over the moon to have  had two cards chosen in the top three now, thankyou! :o)
