Winter Wonderland - Anything Goes Tribute Challenge for Eileen

As many of you know, Eileen our Winter Wonderland blog owner and coordinator passed away recently.  This challenge is a tribute to Eileen for the hard work she put into running the challenge blog and both teams are joining in.  The theme is 'Anything Christmas Goes' and we are sponsored by Little Claire Designs who are offering the winner three digi stamps of their choice.

I'm entering the Alphabet Challenge 'Y for You Choose' (my choice is a Christmas Card), Season's Greetings 'Anything Goes' challenge, Crafty Friends challenge 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Little Claire Designs 'Away in a Manger' digi
Punch: Woodware squared corner
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Gold Stardream, white silk
Paper: Marianne Design 'Wintertime'
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed a piece of blue paper, layered it onto gold card and attached it to the card front.  I resized the digi and printed it onto white card before colouring it with Promarkers.  I punched the corners, layered it onto gold card and attached it to the centre of the card.  To finish I highlighted the image with a Wink of Stella.
