Let It Snow!

I know I said that the Christmas cards were over. Well, they nearly are! I have this one as I could not resist it plus another one basically because I was asked to make one last minute!

This one is for the Tiddly Inks challenge which asks for

Let It Snow

Plus I've used the freebie image on offer (it seemed such a shame not to!) So this is a quick and simple card as the image was pre-coloured. I've used one of my Nestites as a part template for the image and then layered it onto some shiny silver card from my stash.

Jacob picked the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder (I was trying to distract him from a right grump!) for the background, so a bit of corner rounding and inking plus a section of fab black and white ribbon I found in my stash along with a confetti snowflake and a gem: the card is complete!

It's not my usual Christmas colour scheme but I like it and I think it works, plus it uses up some of the off-cuts of card I have!

We went sledging yesterday along with a classmate of Jacob's who lives further down the road, so pics of those to follow!
