Re-launch of Winter Wonderland Challenges!!

Welcome to the fabulous re-launch of the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog! We have decided to make the change over from a Sunday challenge to Friday, thereby allowing more of you lovely crafting people to have more time to join in with our challenges!

So with the re-launch comes a fabulous theme Anything Goes for Christmas. This week we are sponsored by both Janet at Pink Gem Designs and a $15 gift certificate for Simon Says Stamp. Wow - two chances to win this week - how exciting is that! Also, lots of the DT girls have individual blog candies going on in conjunction with participating in the Winter Wonderland challenges!

So I decided to try something a little different with my card this week. I have used lots of layers and created apertures using the nesties Labels 8. My Magnolia winter trees and Edwin's snowman make up this sweet winter scene. I coloured with copics and added a fence using the MS punch. Snowflakes are also MS. Liquid applique with stickles are used for the snow effects.  Just Magnolia this week has 'Anything Goes' too so I will enter this card in their challenge.  Also, Magnolia Stamp Lovers still have the theme 'Create a Scene' so I will enter there again with this card.

I'll be back a bit later with my card for the fantastic PaperWorksCo bloghop so hope you can come back for that!
Thanks for your visit today and I hope you've been able to find some inspiration here to take away with you! I love your comments so please leave one if you have the time! Take care and enjoy a fabulous start to the weekend.
