Bronson & Beaker and 4 challenges

That's the name of this cute Christmas pair, which was a freebie digi from Pollycraft. I chose the papers from my stash & used that as my colour combo, which is unusual I think, I never would have put green & purple together but I think it works quite well. I'm entering my card into 4 challenges:

Die Cut Dreams - Sketch & Snowy theme
Cupcake Crafts - Snow Much Fun

I've coloured my image with PM's and SU markers, and glittered the snow flakes, teddy's pom poms & cuff and the snow on the ground, the sentiment is from Little Paper Shop and I've used my new SU! Window Punch to cut out the sentiment. The cardstock is all SU! - Whisper White, Green Galore and Lavender Lace, the snowflakes are from punches out of some purple holographic card I've had in my stash for ever! I've added some bling from my stash and embossed some of the card stock.

The more I look at this card (and apologies again for the shadowy photo, using a homemade lightbox, which is ok, but needs some tweeking I think!) the more this colour combo is really growing on me, I think I'll be using purple & green again!

Right off to walk the dog before it gets too dark - oh come back summer, I hate these short days!
