Winter Wonderland

Good morning Happy Crafters!
Things are finally starting to take shape around my house
& it looks like we might be more or less organised for Christmas!
Yay!!!! Thank goodness!
Today I bring you a little card I made as GDT for
This weeks challenge over there is

I made a little off-set gatefold card.
I made one side a little bit wider that the other just because I could! lol
For the base I used cardstock from Lidl.
My supplies are running low & I wish they'd get more in as I love it!
The paper I've used is headed paper from the company my brother works for. 
They re-branded & had some left over headed paper which was great quality & far
 too good to throw away! Luckily my brother immediately  thought of me & saved some!

The image is from Molly Skates from The Digi Garden 
I coloured Molly up with some Flexmarkers & Promarkers
then cut her out with an oval Nestie. I inked the edges with a Colourbox Cats Eye
chalk inkpad then matted her onto a scalloped oval of the base cardstock.

The sentiment was simply printed on the pc & then matted onto some cardstock
which was punched with a corner punch at the bottom to replicate the shape of Molly's Skates
The Dp I have used is another from the Papermania Festive Frolics  Pad.
I punched the edges with a Martha Stewart Pine Needles edge punch

I decorated the inside of the card then, wrapped some organza ribbon
 around, securing at the back & under the image then tied in a a bow.
Thanks for dropping in to see my card!
I hope you can play in the Challenge
