Crafty Cardmakers challenge 9 - alternative Christmas


It's time for another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and it's a fun one - we want to see either non-traditional Christmas colours (so no red, green & gold) or non-Christmas images done in traditional colours. Have a look at the rest of the DT's fabulous work and join us if you can :o)

I've made this one for an order (as I suddenly have about 20 orders to complete and am panicking a bit!), and used a large 8"x 8" card blank. I've used a gorgeous digi stamp from Pink Cat Studio, coloured with promarkers and with bucketloads of glamour dust added! The papers are MME, with some sparkly blue cardstock from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated using Scriptina font. The snowflake was made using the cuttlebug icicle die, again with loads of glamour dust, and added large flat back pearls for snowflake centres.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
