Fun With Freebies

The freebies with this month's issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft are just so yummy, beautiful Hollie Hobbie  stamps and a matching paper pack.  The papers are a tad thin but they are double sided and the stamps are very detailed and a good size.  I had to play with them as soon as I got the magazine home from the supermarket and this is what I came up with.
The image has been coloured with Promarkers, thank goodness for fine nibs on this one!
The papers are all from the paper pack, all I added was the pink cardstock, even the poinsettias were fussy cut from patterned paper, with the addition of some tiny pale yellow pearls in the centres.
The sentiment stamp is from a Papermania set and all I needed to finish my card was a gingham bow, some blobs of Pearl Pen and half a ton of Glamour Dust which I used as an outline to all the layers.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Seems a Little Sketchy - #23 - sketch
A Gem of a Challenge - #56 - for the girls
Delicious Doodles - #5 - flowers
Jingle Belles - pink Christmas
Delightful Challenges - winter holiday
The Paper Shelter - #84 - distressing
