Let it Snow and I've been published!

I had a lovely e-mail from somebody who bought some cards from me recently at a craft fair asking if she could order 6 Christmas cards. She wanted A5 size, which is not my favourite size to make. I do find square cards easier for some reason but I was surprised how well this came out. Using the fabulous sketch at Christmas challenges with sketches really helped. They have really great sketches with lots of layers, which I love. If you haven't tried this challenge before then check them out.

Of course the other thing with making A5 cards is that you can't use 6 x 6 paper for the backing paper so I had a sort through my papers and found lots of green left in this old  Papermania pack so I challenged myself to make an all green card. Not a colour I usually use on its own, as it isn't a favourite of mine but I do really like the soft green.

Image - Pollycraft
Medium - Promarkers
Papers - Papermania
Sentiment - LOTV
Tree - Sizzix die
Snowflakes - MS punches
Other - German glass glitter, Viva decor pearl pen, DI Bundled Sage

Other Challenges
2 Sisters Winter Wonderland 
Divas by Design 2 or more patterned papers 
Papercrafting journey CASE a DT card (Alethea's let it snow and snowballs card)

I will be selling at a craft fair all day today so will catch up with you later and link my card.

I was very pleased to receive an e-mail a while ago from Papercraft Inspirations asking if they could feature my blog with a card they had seen on here. Here is part of the page.
