Two more Christmas cards

A quick post from me as I am meant to be doing the housework. The first card is another of my new Pollycraft images. Papers are Dovecraft Fancy Christmas. I used my new MS snowflake border punch which you will be seeing a lot more of I'm sure. I added some MS punched snowflakes and some snowflake confetti and gems. I added a pompom to her hat and used glitter flocking on all her fur trim on her clothes and boots.
Challenges
Pollycraft Christmas card, nor red or green
Sketch Saturday
Sweet Stampin Winter Wonderland
Digital Tuesday Spots and stripes
Stamp something spots and stripes


This week at Winter Wonderland the lovely Danielle has set the DT the challenge of a one layer card. Now this may be an easy challenge for some of you but I found it difficult as I love to use lots of layers on my cards. I decided to cut an aperture in my card with a nellie die and stamp my Forever Friends image inside. I added some stamped snowflakes to the front and some faux stitching around the die cut shape.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

I really love both of your cards! But the card with the teddy is so perfect for the challenge! I love how you stamped the snowflakes so it looks as though he is in a winter wonderland! Your image you coloured for the top card is awesome. Beautiful shades and colours!
