We wish you a Merry Christmas

Hello and Blessings,

This card is a new submission for a two challenges - First, it's my second card for Sunday's FS Challenge over at SCS - created based on inspiration from Gail (GailNM).  Challenge link is here:  FS306 and her card:  Gail's bright and fun Bugs and Kisses.  I changed the theme from Halloween to Christmas, changed the card shape and added a ribbon and charm.

Merry Christmas !

This is also my second submission for the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges Blog, Challenge #50 - Snow:  To create any type of project featuring Snow.  Here's a link to that fun challenge:  Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges.  Below is a close-up view - here you can see the bright sparkly details and the tree ornaments :).

Close-up View

The tree image is colored using Copics - YG11, YG13, YG17, B01, B04, Y38, E08, and E41 and C02 for shading.  The ornaments are glittered using Stickles then covered with Crystal Effects for a fun ornament look.  The background is sponged using Distress Tumbled Glass and Broken China pads.

Here are a couple of other views to show even more of the fun details.  Thanks for looking!!

To make this card I used SU's Snow Much Fun tree image and Papertrey's sentiment from Vintage Ornaments set, along with Spellbinders Grand, Standard and Decorative Labels 1 dies.  Also used Memory Box Snowflake Corner and Frosty Border dies, tons of Glitter, organza ribbon, silver cord and a couple of Christmas Charms.

Hope you all are enjoying this wonderful Season!!  Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments.

Hugs and Blessings to all,

Just beautiful, Audrey! I love ornaments and these are just fabulous. Love all the white and the pretty ribbon. It's amazing!

I think I am to a point where I can return to blogging now. I've missed it and I see you've made some gorgeous creations while I was away.
