Hubby's Christmas card

The Christmas concert yesterday was fantastic so I'm really in the holiday mood now. Apart from a couple of special Christmas cards they are all made, written and most are posted. I seem to have been so busy the last couple of days but I did manage to get Hubby's card made and here it is.

I love the Cherry Kisses range from Pollycraft and as soon as I saw the new Jerry Kisses images I had to buy them, along with a few other new digis of course. Paula now has some Christmas images reduced to 49p so how could I resist some of those too. My friend Lynsey has set the challenge at Pollycraft this week and it is a colour challenge of blue, pink and brown. I wasn't sure that I could use pink on this card but once I had chosen the backing paper which is a pinky brown from DCWV the colours fell into place. I used Dusky Rose and Antique Pink Promarkers on his hat and the snowman's scarf. I didn't think Hubby would appreciate fuchsia or cerise! I'm hoping he likes all the glitter as well. After all, he is used to finding it everywhere, lol! I made the snowflakes using Marianne dies and MS punch and added card candy, a technique I admired on Lynsey's Winter Wonderland penguin card. The sentiment is also from Pollycraft.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles Digi
Craft your days away Texture
Passion for Promarkers Anything goes
A Spoon full of sugar Christmas card
Simon Says Christmas, no red or green
Cards for men Christmas card
Pear Tree Designs Winter Wonderland
Digital Tuesday Baby, it's cold outside
Papertake Christmas, red and green must not be seen
Moving along with the times Lots of spots
