Let it Snow


My second post for today and a much more complicated Christmas card this time. It's the first time I have used this Pink Gem image, which I love. She is coloured with PMs. I added some glitter flocking to her ear muffs and Art Glitter faux snow around the log and her feet. Yes, I am sparkling too now as it is nice and messy.


The background paper was in a scrapbooking kit, the holly paper is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and the blue snowflake is FF cut with an MS doily punch. The sentiment and silver glitter snowflake are Sizzix and the blue snowflake is Me and My Big Ideas. It's only the second one I have used as they are so yummy I don't want to part with them. I added a snowflake brad and highlighted some areas with my Sakura Stardust pen.

At Sassy Designs by Susie Susie is looking for a DT for a new monthly challenge. Let's hope Susie likes my entry. All you have to do is create a Christmas card and enter by 27 October.

There' a great competition at Pink Gem which I am also entering. Make a card using a Pink Gem stamp for the chance to win 6 PG stamps. There's also the chance to be a guest DT.

I used the fab sketch from Willow Sketchie. I'm also entering it for Winter Wonderland where they have an open theme this week so you should all join in this week.
