Advent Calendar Window #3

Good Morning Everyone,
Hope you've had a great weekend!
It's Sandy here with Window 3 in our Advent Calendar. 
If you've been following us for a while you know that there are currently six of us in the DT, however this is about to change next year, as we're expanding the team with one more member.
In case you've missed it, there's a DT Call going on at the moment, it's open till 12.12.2012 - you can find all the details here.

I've asked some of our previous GDTs to help out with the Advent Calendar, and today I'm thrilled to be able to present a project made by one of our our August GDTs, Kirsty-Anne "Kitty" Davies.

Today's Candy are these beautiful Vintage Scallop Lace Trims from Maya Road.
The winner will receive 1 yard of the white trim, and 1 yard of the mauve coloured one.

This is a favourite product of both the DT and Customers alike. 
The trim is so soft and fluffy: I recall a customer saying "it's like Babyskin"!!!

...and as you can see, the creative Kirsty-Anne has used both colours of the trim in her project:

Other Materials used:
Snowfall, Silent Night, Pion Design
Rolled Paper Roses, Kort og Godt
Vintage Pearl Pins, Maya Road
Pearls, Melissa Frances
Snowflake Charm, Bildmalarna
Crystal Glamour Dust, DecoArt
Distress Ink Pads
, Ranger
Gesso, Ranger
Is Kirsty-Anne an amazing paper artist or what?!!!
If you're not familiar with her work, I strongly recommend you pop over to her blog; I promise you'll find it's time well worth spent!!! 
 Thank you so very much Kirsty-Anne for sharing your talent with us again.

By now you probably already know the drill, but just in case:

"This is a totally gorgeous card. Such a stunning image, so beautifully coloured and those roses are fantastic. Love those gorgeous berries and the pretty gingham ribbon too.
