Bearlymine Designs Twentysixth Challenge - "Anything Goes"

Good Morning Everyone, well its only days away to Christmas I do hope that youve nearly finished all your shopping, I have a bit of greengrocery to get then I shall be all ready for the big day. Hubby and I will be spending the day quietly with our dog Missy and perhaps if we feel up to it we shall take her for a walk after lunch. Anyway before I go any further I have some rather sad news Donna has decided to suspend The Bearlymine Designs Challenges for now as shes still unable to take part in them herself and she feels that she needs time to recoup her strength and I sincerely hope that wont be to long, but only time will tell as shes having great problems with her hands at the moment. Thank You Donna for giving me the chance to be on your team and all your beautiful digi paper work, get well quickly.
And now to get back to this last Challenge its one that I know everyone loves as its rather a free for all and that is "Anything Goes" and for this one we are being sponsered by the following companies:-

There are some really awesome prizes on offer there so Im sure you will want to take part in this Challenge, and here is my DT card I made for it.

For my image I have used The Paper Shelters "Holynight" and coloured it with my copic and tria pens before cutting it out with the Nestabilitie Rectangle die, and then used the Heart Square in lilac pearlescent card for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash thats been mounted on a piece of the same lilac card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount I have used the same lilac card and one of two papers from Donna's "Christmas Fun" Bearlymine Digi's Paper Sets, this first paper is a lovely mix of lilac and blue and on top is a deeper mauve with a snowflake design on and Ive cut a 5" square then used the snowflake border and corner punch from Marth Stewart, then on top I have used a dark mauve ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle and on the two edges I have used some Ironwork Accents from Nestabilities that have been cut out of the same lilac card and clipped on the edge of the heart square. To finish of Ive used a hellibore and two fir cones in a floral spray stuck to the card with silicone glue on some punched out holly leaves.
Now that youve seen my card please do go and visit The Bearlymine Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and perhaps you will also want to take part in this "Anything Goes" Challenge which will last for 4 weeks because of all the Christmas festivities and will finish on the 16th January, 2012.
