Hi everyone....well today i'd like to share my DT card for STAMPAVIE and MORE....this week our challenge is "Snowmen",now i know what you're all thinking,she must be mad making Christmas cards already...well there's nothing like starting early...LOL.
I decided to go with a Sugar Nellie stamp "Snow Loved"...coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's.....and just added alittle stickles for the snow.
The papers are DCWV from the "Christmas Wishes" stack.
The panel of green cardstock behind the image i've used a Cuttlebug embossing folder "Snowflakes"....once embossed i rubbed over the raised parts with a sanding block to reveal the white core underneath,so looking like real snow :0).
The ribbon i recycled from a Christmas gift and self adhesive pearls from stash.

For my layout i've followed the sketch by Marlene over at the SUGAR BOWL CHALLENGE....must say a dream to work with,i did rotate it so that i could go with this image,the optional extra is embossing (green panel behing image).

I'm also entering this into the following challenges :-

ABC CHRISTMAS....A is for "Anything Christmas"

I LOVE PROMARKERS...."Recycle"...the ribbon is off a Christmas Present.

Well that's about it for today....i'll be back tomorrow with my card for the WHIMSY DIGI BLOG HOP...

Have a lovely day

Take care

Hi Sandra. Beautiful card. Love the image you have used. Don't think it is ever to early to start Christmas cards. I am going to try and make one every week or so. Hoping too anyway. Take Care. Donna
