FUSSY & FANCY CHALLENGE - 'My Favourite things'

Hi everyone

What a fabulous Challenge we have starting today again at

My lovely friend Gina is hosting this Challenge and has chosen a brilliant theme of 'My favourite things' (Make a creation using any of your favourite things)

We are sponsored by another of my favourite shops  Wild Orchid Crafts

Well, it really is not my turn to Blog today, but with such a lovely theme to work to I could just not resist.   So,  favourite things?  Where do I start?  I have so many favourite things.  But my latest favourites are the lovely Pion papers from the 'Greetings from the North Pole' section found here  After a bit of thought, I decided that a Gatefold card would showcase this lovely image perfectly. The image is quite large on the paper, but Iwanted to use it as an image rather than cover it up (as I tend to do with papers).  I just had to add some lovely embellishments which were a birthday gift from a lovely blogging friend.  

They can be found here

The gorgeous border die - well it will come as no surprise to you to hear it also came from Noor Designs UK 

In addition:

Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste ( )
Tim Holtz Distress inks for the edges

It would be lovely if you had time to pop over and see the Design Team's beautiful inspiration and even better if you fancy joining in with the challenge. ( )

As always, thanks for looking,
