2015 Christmas Card #12

I'm here to share my DT card for the new "Stella Says Sketch" challenge over at Catch the Bug, featuring Winter Bird 2.

I cut out the image using a stitched circle die from Memory Box, colored the image using Promarkers and added white frantage to make the falling snowflakes.
A snowflake die was used and I added a grey pearls to each centre. I used grey seambinding ribbon to attach my tags with sentiments, they're made using LOTV stamps. Paper with red and white gingham is a scrap piece, the background DP is from Maja Design.

I also wanted to let you know there will be aweek long Christmas in July event over at Catch the Bug as from July 11. Why not join the fun and be in the chance of fantastic prices!

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Snow or Glitter
2) Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything Goes Christmas
3) Sparkles Forum Christmas - #54 Ribbon, Lace or Twine
4) Aud Sentiments Challenge - #135 Animal(s)
5) Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Tag It

Absolutely delightful Pia! I LOve all the movement in the background, the frantage for snow and the tags hanging off the bow. Nicely finished, great color choices and a balanced layout - one of my favorites! Delighted you are sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments!

Awesomely cute. Love the lattice dp with the gingham center, and at first didn't realize the lattice was dp. Thought you had overlaid 2 dies. This is gorgeous paper, and that little critter is just too cute for words. Great coloring too. TFS & Have a great week! Hugs
