Triple Time

Hello again...

Well this week I am again combining a few challenges.

This weeks challenge over at Case-ing Christmas was a fabulous card featuring some triple time stamping and was made by Anita, you can see Anita's original creation here at Case-ing Christmas current challenge #20. 
Hazel has challenged us to use some of our favourite things over at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge #229.
The ladies at Glitter n Sparkle would like us to use some ribbon challenge number #137.
Finally Sparkles Christmas Challenge this month is Tag you're it #52.

Now I'm not really into stamping or particularly good at it if I buy stamps it's generally sentiments. I always seem to end up with gaps in my images and bits missing round the edges, but still I decided to give it a go with some stamps from Australian Simply cards #74 a Spellbinders Christmas Creation stamp set. I have opted for two colours and gone non-traditional again. 

I stamped the larger image first before adding the snowflakes, I then decided that there was too much open space and masked off the images and added the swirly stamp from the edges of the large image to fill in some of the gaps adding extra around the edges too. I inked the edges of the tag die and wish I had also done the sentiment strip to make it more obvious.

Here's my card:

The purple backing card seems a little grey in the photo, not quite so dark in reality.
