MC Nov/14 - Toy Soldier Christmas - Love & Laughter

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2014/MCNov14_ToySoldierChristmas_Love&Laughter.html
All of a sudden I was itching to do a Toy Soldier card... beats me why... I'm not in to toy soldiers...

Anyway there were a bunch of challenges going through my mind, including not square or rectangle, adding buttons, bows, bling etc, so things just kept being added. Love the way it turned out and I'm using one of my favorite quote stamps from Quietfire Design Love and Laughter from the Home/Congratulations set, and the eCut word "Christmas" from the Cardinal card I did the other day.

Anyway, to see all the details and descriptions, just click on card image. Enjoy

And it fits for these challenges:
Aurora Wings  #9 anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday  #141 buttons or bows (used both)
Crimbo Crackers  #70  Xmas - Buttons
Milk Coffee Challenge  lots of embellies
Crafts 4 Eternity  #204 buttons, beads & bling

Hiding in my Craft Room  #176 anything goes

Opus Gluei  #197 let it snow

Pile it On Challenge  #48 sprinkle it (embossing powder & glitter)

Awesome job - love the village behind the soldier - like he's on guard. And the holly flourish ties everything together so well.
