Cute Card Thursday - So Charming!

This week over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog our theme is "So Charming!". We want to see you use charms on your card or project. Our sponsor this week is a new regular monthly one....Simon Says Stamp who are offering the winner of this weeks challenge a $25 voucher to spend online. We are also joined by a new Guest DT member...Lisa of Lisa Bees Ponderings.

For my card I have used one of the Lili of the Valley "Christmas Bear" stamps coloured with Copics using the following colours, cut using my Nestabilities and raised on 3D foam pads...
Bear - E50/E51/E53/E31/R20
Star - Y17/Y21
Hat - R46
The papers are all October Afternoon "Good Cheer" and I have layered them with Bazzill & DCWV cardstock. The charm has been created using frosted Shrink Plastic that I stamped with another of the Lili of the Valley images and coloured with Copics...then shrunk it using a heat gun. I have also added a couple of heart pins, Stampin' Up choc chip taffeta, and stars punched with my Stampin' Up star punch. The sentiment is by Craftwork Cards and I have layered it up using a Woodware 1.5" circle punch and the Stampin' Up scalloped circle punch also raised on 3D foam pads. I used the gorgeous sketch over on Friday Sketchers....will certainly be using it again, as I am really pleased with the result....I now have 11 Xmas cards made...don't even want to think about how many more I need.

I love those little Shrink Plastic charms and will have to make more as they are so much fun and Georgia just loves to watch how they look all screwed up and then suddenly they are flat again...as if by magic!

Be sure to come over and join us if you want to be in with a chance of winning the $25 voucher from Simon Says Stamp.

Lovely card Caz, I never have a lot of luck with shrink plastic, it either doesn't go flat, the colours all run or it sticks to itself and won't unstick!
