A new challenge and a new card

It's the very first challenge on Sam's blog at http://lily-bootoo.blogspot.com/ and she is giving away a lovely house image to use. The recipe is from the kitchen of Enfys and the challenge is to use the house image, 2 ribbons, 3 flowers and 4 brads.
These step cards are quite easy to make once you know how. To make the card I printed out the house and one of Sam's Christmas Corner images, stamped the bear and cat on the sleigh and the snowman and coloured them using Copics. Then I used the Cuttlebug folder 'Swiss Dots' on white cardstock and did some tearing. The 2 ribbons are along the bottom of the card, the 3 flower are blue and the 4 brads are holding the sentiment. It is a little difficult to see but there is a Christmas tree in one of the windows. I quite like the effect where the sun was shining through my window when I took the photo.

ADDITION: IF you want to make one of hese cards here are a couple of links for you. I found these after I had worked out how to make one!!! Love this blog, be sure to check out what she does and leave her a message on her blog.
