Let It Snow

Welcome to Challenge #11 at Emma's Cards and thank you to all who entered the previous challenge. The entries were fantastic and the lucky winners will be announced in a few days time. The theme for this month is "Let it Snow" and is being sponsored by Visible Image who are offering a bumper bundle of stamps worth £35 as the first prize. See below for a photo of the prize and a list of the stamps.
If you take a look at the challenge blog you will see the fabulous cards that the other DT members have made to inspire you. Here is my card for your inspiration.

I inked the edges of an 8" x 8" card blank with Festive Berries Distress Ink and layered with a white card I'd embossed with a small Sheena Douglass Ivy Leaf embossing folder. I lightly wiped over this with Mowed Lawn DI. The holly wreath was created by using a Sheena Douglass holly stamp set and coloured using Promarkers. I cut out the leaves, shaped them and positioned with Pinflair to give some depth and dimension.

The poinsettias are a Marianne die that were coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment sash is a strip I cut from a backing paper I made in MCS for another card.

I spot glittered the leaves and flowers and finished the wreath with a triple bow using ribbons from my stash.

This is the fabulous collection of stamps from our sponsor Visible Image for the lucky winner.

They are: Live Well, Calligraphy Corner, Corset, Blow Out the Candles, Happy Birthday, However you spend it, Bronte Border, Good Luck Cat Set, Live Your Dreams and Large Butterfly.
So, to be in with a chance of owning all of these wonderful stamps, you'd better get making. We can't wait to see your creations over at Emma's Cards, remember that your entry doesn't have to be a card, just a crafty make that fits the theme "Let it Snow". You have until the end of the year!
