{Pin}spirational Challenge #179

Hello crafty friends!

Hope everyone is keeping well and looking forward to the festive season!
The weather here has turned cold and stormy and I've gone into semi-hibernation.
I can't wait for spring!!
On the plus side, mince pies are in abundance :-)

Today is the start of a new challenge at 
{PIN}spirational Challenges.
Challenge #179 runs until 5th December.

We have 2 generous sponsors: 


This is the inspiration photo:

Mmmm!! A festive drink ... just what I need!

The sponsors kindly gave the DT images to work with and I chose a Sherri Baldi image. The gorgeous teal mugs inspired my colour scheme and my girl is holding a mug of chocolate!

Here is my card:

I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pens and added iridescent glitter to her fur trim. The glittered background papers are from Trim Craft and both of these were matted onto black card before being attached to the card base as an 'over the edge' card. 
The flowers are made from an Yvonne Creations Poinsettia die. The white flower is made from white glitter card and has its edges inked in red. The teal flowers have white ink edges, but it doesn't show up very well. The centre of the poinsettias are made from mini prills. The sentiment is die cut (X-Cut) from white card with a black shadow to make it stand out more.

That's all from me today.  I hope you'll pop over to 
to check out the gorgeous designs by the rest of the DT. 

We would love for you to take part in the challenge!
