A girlie Christmas Card for 2 Challenges


Second post today, but it makes up for not doing one yesterday as I was out all day.

Bit of different Christmas card, but it's nice to be different sometimes.

I've followed one of Vee's sketches from her Sketchpad blog, if you haven't been over I can thoroughly recommend it, she does some fab sketches which are great to follow if you're struggling for a layout plus this week she's giving away a lovely prize too - so hop on over here for a look!

The image is a digi from Your Special Delivery and I just loved the idea of a ballerina snow-woman, they have a new challenge blog launched and the image was free. I've coloured her with pm's and watercoloured the skirt using SU! crayons, the two little stars are stamped out with SU! Snow Burst stamps, and I've then gone over the dots with the new glue pen & dipped into Dazzling Diamonds. I've also used a sparkly pen to go over some of the main image & the backing papers, but that doesn't show up too well on the piccie. The sentiment is SU! from the retired hostess set Best Yet and I've added a bit of sticky ribbon from my stash.
