Winter Birds

It's time for our mid challenge reminder over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  Our theme is always 'anything goes' - you can use any materials, any techniques etc., as long as the end result is a Christmas card.

I have used the fun image called Winter Birds - Snowman from our sponsor - Bugaboo.


I coloured my image with ProMarkers and added lots of Darice glitter to the birds hat and the snow.


The papers are from the Echo Park Winter Wishes collection and the sentiment has been recycled from a gift tag.  I have added a bow made with seam binding from my stash.


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

Great Impressions January Challenge - Snow Friends
The Glory of Christmas Challenge 50 - Non Traditional Colours
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge 62 - Fun in the snow
Eureka Stamps Challenge 123 - Baby it's Cold outside
Little Claire Digi-Stamp Challenge 1 - Open Theme
Creative Craft Challenge 31 - Anything Goes
Little Red Wagon Challenge 272 - Frosty
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge 68 - Use Something Recycled (sentiment)
Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge - A Christmas Critter with a Splash of Glitter

Make sure you pop over to the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog and check out the fabulous DT inspiration - we would love for you to join us for our Anything Goes Christmas challenge.

Thank you for visiting today.
