Xmas Snowballs

This is my card for the the mid challenge reminder at Craftyhazelnut'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 project.


I followed the sketch from the second challenge in the Bugaboo Fifth Annual Christmas in July week long event.

 

I have used the fun image called Poppi Xmas Snowballs kindly provided by our regular sponsor - Bugaboo.  I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir markers and added glitter to the snow and 3D Cystal Lacquer to the berries.  My papers are from the Fancy Pants Blissful Blizzard collection, I added two Die'sire Essentials Decorative corner die cuts and the ribbon is from my stash.

Bugaboo Stamps are our sponsor this challenge


They are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

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

Crafting from the Heart Challenge 68 - Always Anything Goes
