Christmas is coming ! :-)

I made this card for the Snowflakes in September Allsorts Challenge !!! Missed the deadline !!! :-( never mind it is one christmas card less to make :-) hundreds still to go !!!

I followed Dawny P's fabulous sketch on the Papertake Weekly Challenge



I put a snowflake where the sentiment should be because the backing paper has writing all over it and I thought that was enough ! :-)
I have kept this card quite simple ,, I was tempted to use ribbons and snowflake brads but quite liked it left bare :-)




The PB images were stamped and coloured with copics 3D'd and I used ice stickles for the sparkle :-) the papers are from a lovely new set of Funky Fairys Papers,,, this one is called Shabby Christmas Time It is a fabulous set with lots of papers that you can use all year ! :-) I alos used plain white card which I embossed with the cuttlebug snowflake folder :-)
The snowflakes are made using a spellbinders snowflake die cut and a couple of papermania brads to hold them together :-)

I am also entering this into the One Stop Crafts Challenge whose theme this week is Die Cuts :-)

Thanks for looking, please leave a comment before you hop off so I know you've been visiting :-) also I have a blog candy at the top of my blog if you would like to take a look ;-)
