My 1st DT card for The Stamp Basket!

I'm here with my very first DT card for The Stamp Basket - so excited but I'm a big bag of nerves too!

I have used:

  • Stamp - Bildmalarna 'mimosa - waiting for santa' - The Stamp Basket 
  • Coloured with - flexmarkers, promarkers & koh-i-noor pencils + white gel pen for falling snow!
  • Papers - Nitwit Collections 'joyful hearts' - The Stamp Basket
  • Cardstock - Papermill Direct
  • Sentiment - from the Fizzy Moon 'presents' set - The Stamp Basket
  • Deco Art Glamour Dust in crystal - The Stamp Basket
  • Berisford satin ribbon & Dovecraft adhesive gemstones - The Stamp Basket
  • Blossom & circle nestabilities
I'm not sure if I achieved it, but I was trying to do a 'just starting to get dark and snowy' sort of scene lol.  She's very sweet isn't she?  My first Bildmalarna stamp, aww :o)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Still got my yucky cold... I didn't really do any blogging yesterday, I just didn't feel like doing much... today I'm at the streaming eyes, constantly sneezing stage, it's great fun!  Hope I haven't sent you all to sleep with my long post... I'll be showing my card on The Stamp Basket Blog in a little while too - pop over there to see the fab cards my teamies have posted so far this week :o)
