It's time for another challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  The challenge for this week was set by Lynsey   she has chosen a mistletoe challenge, so we want to see a Christmas card or project with mistletoe on it.

 Our sponsor for this week is Crafty Emma's Shop.

 She is offering a wonderful prize of a £10 voucher to spend in her online store. Wow what a prize!
Here is my card.

Hints and Tips
To give the die cut mistletoe more dimension I have layered up the pieces of card and I have also coloured the edges of the die cut.
