Side Stepper Card - Lets Ink It Up

Hi all sorry about the lateness of my post I have schedule this post to go live at 3.00pm on Saturday as I know I was going to be busy putting up my Christmas decorations... Checked my blog this morning and found my post didn't post! Isn't that so annoying! but for once it wasn't bloggers fault but mine, I schedule it to go live Sunday at 3 instead of Saturday. What a Numpity!!

Anyway, lets get on with the show! Over on Lets Ink It Up we start another challenge and the theme this month is Christmas.  This challenge will only run for 2 weeks and we are being sponsored by two fabulous companies 
the prize package is a
Don't forget to head on over to their store, great products, great prices and as I said they are great supporters of LIIU, so let us support Simon Says Stamp as well.

A prize package of 2 amazing stamp sets.

I have been putting up my Christmas decorations for most of the day and very nearly finished and its beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I love to burn those scented candles with the Christmassy smells so its beginning to smell a lot like Christmas too!  
Once I've finished I will take a few pic's for you.

For my card I made another side stepper card.  I have so fallen in love with these cards, I can't tell you how much fun they are to make.  Me thinks its all the colouring and embellies that you can include that make them so special.  

All the stamps I used are from Magnolia apart from the little postage stamp sentiment as that is from Whimsy stamps I have also used the postage stamp die to get that perfect cut. The fence and cloud are both Magnolia Doohickey dies I have crackled the fence by using rock candy crackle paint then distressed it after it had dried so all the colour gets into those cracks.  Around the cloud I used a Viva Decor pearl pen to create little pearl drops.

I have used tons of walnut satin distress inks around all the edges on the card
I had taken so many images I decided to put a few altogether. 
In this photo you can see the back of the card which I have decorated and left a space for a personal sentiment. Also a few close up shots of the two Tilda's
