First for the Design Team

This card is the one first for the Christmas Cards All Year 'Round Design Team.  Their theme this month is nice and easy "Anything Goes" so why not make a head start on all those Christmas cards we all have to make and enter their challenge, (I have a confession I was so busy making commissioned cards this year that most of my family didn't get one . . . isn't that terrible???).
That won't be the case this year of course since I will be working with the design team for 6 months and should get plenty made in time; although one of my sisters did quip that they probably wouldn't get birthday cards instead this year as I would be busy with Christmas; sisters eh, you've got to love them : )

The image is from Magnolia, of course . . . still finding them very irresistible : )

She is coloured with Copic markers:

Skin: E000; E00; E02 and R20

Hair: E35 and E71

Hat: R05; R17 and C1

Coat: B00; B12; B23 and C1

Jeans: B93; B95 and B97

Boots: E47; E71 and C5

Snowman body: B00; B60; YR04; YR07; B12 and C7

Snowman's Hat: R05; R17 and C1

Broom: E37; E50; E51; E53; E35; E71; B60 and B00

The paper is from "K&Co" Ultimate Christmas Creative Pad mounted on silver mirror board and Dreadnought Grey Canford card from Daler-Rowney

I slotted 30mm satin edged organza ribbon through the main topper.

The snowflakes were made using a Marianne D Creatable die to cut blue mirror card and white glitter card shapes.  They were finished using a flattened bead cap and a pearl brad.

The sentiment is from Anita's Christmas Sentiments in silver.

The corners are finished with Papermania adhesive stones in transparent.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly Challenge - "Cold and Frosty Morning"

Creative Card Crew - "Fancy Folds"

Just Magnolia and hAnglar stAnglar Challenge #89 - "My Favourite Things"

Thanks for reading,
