Marie is the host for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge and she has chosen 'Frosty' (either cold colours or snowmen) or 'Well Wrapped Up' as the themes.  This week we have two sponsors - Marianne Designs who are offering a special prize and Bugaboo are offering seven digis.

I have used a lovely Bugaboo image for my card and have chosen the 'Frosty' theme.  I am entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'U for Under the Pile' (I've had the backing paper and Candy BonBon for well over a year), Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Cute or Anything Goes as Long as it's Christmas', Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'Show me a Snowman' and Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Bugaboo 'Christmas Words - Snow' digi
Die: Cheery Lynn 'Snowflakes Set 2'
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: White silk, silver mirri
Paper: Snowflake (magazine freebie)
Other: Diamond Stickles, Wink of Stella, Turqouise Candy BonBon

I trimmed the snowflake paper, layered it onto silver mirri and attached it to the card front.  I resized the digi, printed it onto white card, and coloured it with Promarkers to match the colours of my paper. The image was trimmed, layered onto silver mirri and attached to the centre of the card. I die-cut a snowflake and attached it to the top corner, adding a turquoise BonBon in the centre.  To finish, I added Diamond Stickles to highlight the snow and a Wink of Stella on the hat bands.

This snowman image is very cute Kath and love the shades of blue with the background paper. The snowflake with the pretty blue centre blends with the other blues perfectly and love the WOS for a bit of sparkle. x
