WooHoo! Elphine House Australia first challenge!!! :)

Hello everyone!

Finally the day has come! The very first Elphine House Australia challenge has just been posted on the Elphine House Australia Blog!! Yay! :)

The challenge is called "Lace it Up", absolutely lovely, if you ask me. ;) And will run for two weeks, so lots of time for you to join.

I do really hope you will come to join us, because not only you are allowed to use any and I mean any stamp designed by the fabulous Elisabeth Bell, but because you also get not one, but two chances to win! That's right! Two Elphine House Australia stamps are offered as prize in the first challenge and who wouldn't like to win one of those cuties!?

Anyway, to get completely informed, to see how to take part in the challenge, how to be in the chance of winning one of the stamps please read The EHA Challenge Rules, it will only take a few minutes and you will find out everything you should now, or are not sure about. :)
And don't forget to check out absolutely gorgeous cards the DT girls have made for the first EHA challenge and then of course take part! :)

And now my card:

It's never to early for Christmas right!? Or presents! ;) I absolutely couldn't wait to use this cutie pie, it's called Greetings Bell Chime, designed of course by Elisabeth Bel for Elphine House Australia.
The papers are Basic Grey "Vassail" and MME - "The Merry Days of Christmas"and that's where the circle sentiment is from.
The lace, ribbon, flower and the heart pearls are from stash.
I wanted to give this card a vinatge feel and try something else this time, so I stamped the image with distress ink "Vintage Photo" on a 300 g watercolour paper and just used some water and a brush to colour it.
