Lili Of The Valley Anything Goes - Challenge 122

Hi friends and fellow crafters! Today's Christmas card is another Lili Of The Valley Stamp and I have finally decided to try to enter one of their challenges. This is for the Anything Goes Challenge at Lili Of The Valley Challenge Blog
 This image is called Carol Singing and is from last year's Christmas collection. I colored it with copics and used some  Sparkly fluff on the hats and snow. I found the Jolee's corner snowflake stickers in my stash and since I am trying to stop hoarding my supplies, I added them on the image. They look really cute on the card.

I wanted to bring an element from the image onto the card and chose the lamp post. I used my Circut Circle Cartridge, Pop Up Neighborhood, to cut the lamp post. I added some sparkle to it with 3-D Crystal Lacquer and Martha Stewart Glitter. I found the Jolee's wreath sticker with a whole stash of Christmas stickers, and decided it would be the perfect accent for the lamp post.

Once again, I used the Close To My Heart Acrylix stamp from the Art Philosophy bundle for the sentiment on the front of the card. Inside the card, I used a computer generated sentiment and decorated it with a Sandylion sticker. All the papers on the card are from K&Company's Christmas collections that I had in my stash.

I really want to make a couple more of these, but I have challenged myself to use as many of my Christmas stamps as I can this year, so no doubles for me.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Happy Crafting!
