First Christmas Card of the year

Evening All,

I made this card for the Moving Along with the Times Challenge. This week they have a DT call, fingers crossed for me please! - Their Challenge was a sketch with an optional c theme of Ice Blue & White.

The challenge over at Stamp Something this week is also Christmas, so this card works for there too!

The Creative Belli Challenge is texture - I used Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Flock (see below for more info)

The Papertake Weekly Challenge is "My favourite Things". I think Christmas is by far my favourite holiday, and the Martha Stewart Punch is definitely a huge favourite at the moment!


Here's a picture of the overall card



A close up of Anya



I've done her 'furry bits' with white doodlebug crushed velvet flock, you can kind of see the difference!



To make this card I used:
Stamp - from greeting farm, rain snow and shine anya, painted with H2Os and then doodlebug crushed velvet flock used for the 'white furry bits'
Papers - Dovecraft Winter Wonderland Pack 2008
Cardstock from stash
Embellishments:
Snowflakes from Paperchase, Reindeer from Paperchase, Ribbon and peel off from Stash.
And of course, I used my addictive new martha stewart doily lace border punch :)

Hope you like it! xxx
