My Guest Designer Card for Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

THE STUDIO...I was invited to be a Guest Designer over at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge this week, and I'm so glad to join the talented ladies for their bingo challenge - you can find the details here.
I love making Christmas cards and  I love bingo challenges! They've got two sponsors this week, and I chose to use Otis the Owl from Oak Pond Creations for my card. I colored him with Promarkers and gave him a paper pieced hat and shoes with glitter and gold stickles details.
For the background I used a DP from Maja Design and corrugated cardstock covered with Inka-Gold and frantage. The die cut snowflakes is covered with gems. I also made a scene of tress using white corrugated cardstock and vellum as well as cheesecloth for the snowy ground. 

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Christmas Card Challenges - #17 Anything Goes
2) Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge - #169 All wrapped up
3) Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - Brr.... It's Cold outside!

This is wonderful. I love the frantage and the gold rubbed corrugated. I must try to remember to gild mine too!
I love the look of frantage yet always seem to forgt to use mine...
