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)
