LOTV DT Card - One For The Boys & Challenges!

(Edited Photo)
Not my usual style of card, but this weeks theme over the LOTV Challenge Blog is "One For The Boys" so I thought I'd try a different approach and keep it clean and simple. Normally my cards are covered in backing papers and flowers so this was a challenge to myself.
The image is called "Collecting the Tree" and has been coloured with Copics. The Christmas Tree's are a BG stamp which has been masked and stamped over using Chalk Ink Pads. Sentiment is Autumn Leaves and the snowflakes are a Marianne Die. Practically everything on this card has been stickled in various colours. Love crimbo cards with a bit of sparkle and considering theres no flowers or papers I quite like how it turned out.
Anyway, do go take a look at what the other fantastic cards my DT buddies have to show you to, all gorgeous as always. This week the prize is a £10 Voucher to spend in the LOTV Shop.


Now heres a few challenges this card is going into;
Crafty Cardmakers - Clean & Simple (no papers and packet embellishments)
Corrosive Challenge - Olive Green/Red
Sweet Stampin - Winter Wonderland
Christmas Card Challenge - Clean & Simple

Hope you can join in this weeks LOTV Challenge.
See Ya Soon!
