"Anything Goes" at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges!

Oh My Goodness, have you all realised that it is only 7 more weeks until Christmas!! Eeek!!! Well, this week the challenge over at the Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge Blog is "Anything Goes" so what a great excuse to join in with this challenge, make a Christmas card, and be in the running to win a great prize!

I've used the gorgeous "Lil Christmas Lolita Christina" which is my favourite Tickled Pink Stamps Christmas image so far. Normally I would sponge the paper edges with ink, but this time I painted with white acrylic paint - nice Christmas effect I think!

Ooo Karyn, your Christmas Lolita looks wonderful on this fabulous card. Love how that musical note background paper makes it appear that there's Christmas Carols playing while she opens her gift. So glad to see your entry at the Crafts and Me Digi team's Let the Music Move You challenge. Hugz, ~ Rose
