No red or green


Today sees the first of our 12 weekly pre Christmas challenges at Crafty Ribbons. Yes is only 12 weeks to Christmas so instead of fortnightly challenges we will be weekly until Christmas so lots more chance to get those Christmas cards made and more chances to win a prize. I am the host for this challenge and I chose no red or green, Christmas plus ribbon of course. I used an Embossalicious embossing folder, 5 snowflake dies and 2 snowflake punches. The cute snowman is LOTV from the new trio set, coloured with Copics with added pearl pen and Stickles.

Challenges 
Papertake Take your pick (embossing) 
Natalie and Amy Snowpeople 
Country View ad some texture 
Die Cuttin Divas anything goes 
Simon Says anything goes 
Penny's anything goes
Little Miss Muffet Bingo (dies, sentiment,glitter)
Everybody Art Circles

Great card Marianne - the coloured image really 'pops' from the white background.
Saw your lovely Scottie dog cards in a recent magazine feature - they were fabulous.
