WOJ and other challenges!

I have not entered a WOJ challenge for a very long time, but after receiving my new stamps I just had to play along with this weeks sketch. Think this is one of my favourite christmas stamps right now. I had so much fun colouring it. Last night I stamped some images and had a few hours just colouring. I love using my Copics but adding Pencil to them really makes a difference so I used Copics and a Mix of Prisma's and Derwent Coloursoft, blending with Sansador. Just love the overall effect. A little more time consuming but worth the effort imo.
The papers are BG Eskimo Kisses and the Sentiment is also WOJ. The flowers have sparkle and I have used a red Spica Pen for the baubles on the tree (not showing very well).

This card also fits in with a few other challenges and alot are chistmas themed so no surprises there!

Here are the other challenges, a great mix and I had alotta fun;

Taken a few piccies. The sun is shining today but I think it may be a bit too bright - LOL
Thanks for looking, the weekend is here, Christmas Tree going up tomorrow and I really need to get prepared for Christmas. Coming round way to quick again.
Have a great weekend and thanks for taking the time to have a look at my card!
