Good Afternoon Everyone,

How are you all today? I am a bit late in getting this card up for Pattie, I scheduled it but it didn't go up, I have just got back this afternoon from a lovely week away at centre parcs for their winter wonderland experience, I am so relaxed and in the mood for Christmas now.

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Patties Creations Challenge Blog and this fortnights theme is

That's right we want to see your Christmas Cards. 

My card is a standard A5 card that is matted with a red swirly backing paper, I have edged this with red distress ink. 

I used my A2 Curved border die from Spellbinders to create the middle section, I used a piece of pearl card for this section, I printed and cut my image out using a spellbinder die shape, and matted this onto the red card. I coloured the image in using promarker pens, I added a gem to the middle of the bow, and I added fluffy snow to the top and the bottom of the image. 

To finish the card, I cut two corner dies out in the red card, added three red gems, a sentiment that was stamped and embossed then cut out using a spellbinder die, I also added a strip of Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year piece of ribbon.

The challenges I am entering this into are 
4 Crafty Chicks #170 Christmas 5/12
Crafting By Designs - Christmas/Winter - 4/12

Thanks for looking

This card came out so nice! I love how you colored my Lampost image and all the dies that you used. I also like the snow that you added.
