Off The Rails DEC CHALLENGE & Mixed Media Card Challenge

YUP! It's 'that' time of the year! And over at OFF THE RAILS, we're giving you a BONUS...not ONE mood board - but TWO....it's up to you to choose!!
And if this one doesn't 'do' it for you, how's about this one:
This is the one I picked...I thought the dark green was black...hey ho! Them's the breaks!! 'Sides, the mood board is for INSPIRATION, so you don't have to use all the colours. Luckily for me, eh?
I really wanted to use the TRAD colours in an UNtraditional way.....so, I did this, using Core'dinations cardstock from a SCRAPBOOKING MEMORIES giveaway:
And a closie.....I got my CAS on for a change!!! And THANKS, Linda E...for that LOVELY mask:):)
 The thread comes from KREINIK...the 'Merry' from that SCRAPTASTIC Kit from LAST December:):)
The paper string comes from the CRAZY MONDAY shop and the alphas in a giveaway I got from the POLKA DOT CREATIVE shop!
I know December is a slightly [understatement] time of the year ~  but I do hope you can join us at Off The Rails:) We have a WONDERFUL prize this month:


So, I made a Chrissy card - I took the sentiment from some of the DT cards - it works so well for Christmas!
Took some chippy - added glitter nail polish! Thanks for the FLAIR Mitra P....yep! Used already;)
 Double heat embossed - first with Distress embossing powder in green, then added some gold over the top!
The chippy stars have been sparkled up....& thanks Sandy A for the reindeer!!!
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
