Trimming the Tree - Whimsy DT card

I made another card with one of the images from the Whimsy stamps-July Digital release. You can buy all the images in the Whimsy Stamps Store.

I love Christmas/Winter images and I think my favourite cards to make would have to be Christams/Winter cards with Autumn cards, too.
This image is called Trimming the Tree and has been designed by Crissy Armstrong,while the sentiment comes from the matching Trimming the Tree sentiment set designed by Ann Vento. The papers are Basic grey- "Wassail". The lace, ribbon and heart gems are from stash. The brad is Woodware and the flower has been made by me. If you'd like to see how I make my paper flowers, check out my Paper Flower Tutorial, which I've just posted.

The image was coloured with watercolour pencils and I added some glitter glues - red, blue and yellow and stickles - "Frosted lace".

This is the sentiment I used there are four in the set.

And this is my paper flower, like I said I've now posted the tutorial, too.

With this card I'm entering the following chalenges:

ABC challenges the letter "Y" - "You and Me", to use a stamp with two images or two stamps on our cards.
Fussy and Fancy challenge with the theme - "Christmas in July"
Basic Grey challenge there is a photo for inspiration
Corrosive challenge which has the theme - "Christmas Time"
