Onto my card for the challenge and my favourite technique is creating different shape cards.  This one is a Tent Card.  I found a fabulous tutorial on how to create them on Louise's blog  so thanks Louise for the fab tut.. 
I used one of my new Magnolia stamps and teamed it up with an older circle sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.  The gorgeous Reindeer use to be a tree decoration that I have altered with Red Acrylic paint and Tim Holtz crackle paints to create that aged look.  I have also used the hearts boarder die from Magnolia and attached it on the inside.  

Here you can see that gorgeous sentiment from Whimsy I have mounted it onto a Magnolia Doohickey label, distressed then added a few sticks of Cinnamon and an old rusty bell attached with natural string.  

Close up of Tilda the copic colours I used are 
E44, 43, 41, 40
R89, 59, 39, 37
E29, 25, 31 - Hair
E00, 000, R20 - Skin

These wonderful flowers have been glittered and German Glass Glittered and in-between I have added a grapevine star, leaves and a few more sticks of cinnamon.  Really make the card smell all Christmasey .

I have decorated the back and left a space for my own special sentiment to go..
