DT post for Craft -Room Challenge 'Anything Christmas'

Well two weeks have flown by again and we are back with another challenge for you at Craft-Room Challenge.  Our theme for this fortnight is 'Anything Christmas'  and I have created my own version of an advent calender.  I hope you like it :o)

The idea for this came from a magazine that had a tutorial on a 4 drawer easle card.  I just added a few more layers!

Top easle card.  The backing papers for this card are from Hot off the press Forever cchristmas cards pack.

the image is one of my new Nellie Snellen stamps 'DAWN 005' And has been coloured with pro markers. It has been stamped onto an Xcut circular die and then attatched to a doily which has been inked with green and red. The sentiment is a See D's stamp punched out and inked, again with red and green and layered onto a Marianne creatable die cut.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the swirls are again Marianne creatables, and I have added mini gems to the ends.  The flowers have been glittered.

Flowers and pearls are from Wild orchid, swirls are marianne creatables and punch leaf is Xcut

I will be entering this card into the following challenges Use something new (new Nellie Snellen stamp) Nothing square about me!

Thanks for stopping by

Your card is very beautiful but for you to qualify for our challenge at Magical Mondays you need to have used a magical character, eg fairy, dragon, even Rudolf at Christmas.
