All I Want for Christmas Is!

It is time once again for the
Christmas Card Club girls 
to show their makes for the latest challenge
which was set by Asha.
I have gone with the theme 
All I want for Christmas Is!
I had seen this digi by Mo's Digital Pencil
earlier in the month and knew I wanted to use it here.
The Window aperature was a win I received from
Frosted Designs challenge  which was a pack
of chipboard cut outs by Scrapmatts (Australia).
The window was on one of the sheets and worked
perfectly for this card.
I coloured using Liquid Pearls
in Dark Chocolate and Onyx Pearl to give a
distressed look to it. The corner pieces were left over from
my House mouse cards and given the same treatment.
Card was cut from red card stock and the toning dp
came from a Crafts Beautiful freebie paper collection 2012.

The inside showing the acetate window I sandwiched
between the front and inside front cover

Digi was coloured with pro markers
and you can just see the stickles on the greenery 
on the mantle piece.

  23. A fab take on Asha's "All I Want" theme. Love this digi...and so beautifully colored. I'm liking the way you've sandwiched the acetate window as you did. Great color workup with the liquid pearls too. HOw fun you could use your leftover corners. They worked perfectly to dress up this pretty card. TFS & Hugs
