Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Week 2

It's week 2 of Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge
this weeks theme is to create a card using either a 'freebie' or something 'recycled'
I have used the 'Freebie Cover Stamp' from Craft Stamper November 2010 Issue
This month’s free cover mount stamp is an elegant Christmas Baubles stamp designed by Glenda Waterworth for Elusive Images.
For inspriation I used one of Glenda's fabulous 'Free Stamp Makes' featured in the magazine. I did not have any of the suggested supplies apart from the 'Frebbie' Elegant Christmas Baubles' and Stream Adirondack oh and the base card. I supplemented the following of suggested supplies
'stickles' for Twinkling H2O's
'Momento' Bahama Blue/Grape Jelly ink pads for Distress ink pads
Elusive images 'sentiment' RS for a sentiment by Elyzbells
Artylicious Spirit of Christmas for  Papermania Capsule collection
I ended up using a different 'flourish' RS for the first mat as I just did not think of
using the flourish from the beautiful RS. I used 'ink dusters' as the
belding tool for the distress inks, cannot find my usual blending tool!

I used 'Twinking H2O's instead of the suggested
Stickles, I then added some 'gems' to add a bit of 'life' and
dimension to the image.
