TIME OUT Challenge Reminder

Happy Friday Eve to all.

Over at TIME OUT Challenges we are announcing the winners of our last challenge so don't forget to go and check it out. And today I have a card that will hopefully inspire you to join in our current CASE challenge. We are CASEing the fabulous crafter Anita. My card today was inspired by her layout but also was heavily influenced by a few other challenges in blogland. 
First off my card:


I really wanted to play along at Festive Friday this week because as soon as I saw the photo I thought of kraft and white. I was going to use embossed snowflakes until I saw that at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown the challenge is 'Mistletoe and Wine'. The idea for this card immediately came into my head...I do love it when that happens!

I stamped the mistletoe and then decided to go over the stamping with a glitter pen to add some Xmas sparkle. And to take the white theme further I used a white pen to add some berries. 

I will also add this to Marina's Christmas card gallery.

Here is Anita's card:



And the photo from Festive Friday:
