Lili of the Valley- Plum Pudding and a crafting mishap!

Hello. My sis is visiting my Mum today so I can quickly post a card I meant to post for LOTV's challenge last week but luckily it fits this week's challenge as well as which is "something new". For me, this is new stash! I bought 3 LOTV Christmas stamps when they had a deal going but hadn't had a chance to use them as I'd already made all my cards for this year but then my Mum asked me to make a last minute card so here we are....(!)

I used LOTV Plum Pudding- love love her outfit!!!! I coloured with copics. The papers are Maja Designs Vintage Winter. I used Memory Box holly die and my new Stampin Up border punch. Sentiment (stamp and die) are PTI.

I'd like to enter this into:
LOTV Challenge- something new (new stash!)
ABC Christmas- favourite punch/die (my Papertrey Ink sentiment "wonderful words" dies)
Stampavie- Christmas
Simon Says- your favourite (my favs at the mo are my Papertrey Ink "wonderful word" dies and my new Stampin Up punch!)
Whimsy Inspires- anything festive
Celebrate the Occasion- Christmas with a punch
Die Cutting Divas- holiday spirit
Crafty Boots- Christmas

So I didn't know whether to show you this close up or not but I like my colouring so I thought "what the hell"! Eagle eyes will spot the horrid smudging over the spoon and sleeve!!! I had finished my card and was just smoothing everything down when I realised I had brown ink on my finger from stamping the sentiment which ended up over my little chappie on the image!!!!!! Disaster! So i basically did a bit of sponging ink around the image to take the focus from the smudginess! Humph!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (LOTV, PTI); Copics; Papers (Maja Design); Assorted cardstock; Punch (Stampin Up); Gold Stickles; Nesties; Sentiment die (PTI); Holly die (Memory Box)
