Christmas card season.



Heres my first Christmas card of the year. Its using an absolutely GORGEOUS image by Mo Manning.. Isnt it sooo sweet ? I coloured the image with Promarkers and added stickles to the furry bit of their coats. The image was backed onto a piece of Christmassy blue paper with snowflakes on it. I ran a piece of acetate through my cuttlebug in my snowflakes folder, which is something i havent tried before. I put a few buttons and a snowflake charm ontop so it would finish the card off.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Stamping with the dragon challenge #5 which is a receipe transparent and 3 buttons

Magical Crafts challenge#19 Christmas in July

ABC Christmas Challenge N for Noel anything christmas goes

Paper Cutz Challenge #49 Christmas NO red or green

MSE new technique.. Cuttlebugging acetate
