Jellypark - Challenge 1 & Freebie!

The day is finally here! The very first Jellypark challenge and what a fab challenge we have for you! You need to pop over to the challenge blog to snag the very cute snowman that Claire has designed and to enter the challenge! You don't need to use the snowman to enter the challenge, but it's so cute - how can you resist?!

I've used him (he is a him - for this card at least!) on my card which I think looks a bit like a giant snowball! He's been coloured with Promarkers and added to the card with foam pads. All the papers are from Dovecraft Let It Snow 12x12 paper stack and I've dotted the edges with liquid pearls (becoming a bit of an obsession!)

I've added some wonderfully co-ordinated shiny parcel ribbon (bought from the Poundshop last year) to hide the paper joins, added some very fluffy (and gets everywhere!) silver stringy stuff and attached it with brads. I wasn't going to attempt glue as it would get messy and I've not got the patience for it to dry! To finish, I've added two silver confetti snowflakes.

Hope you can enter the challenge - it runs for two weeks. For more details and to see the rest of the Design Teams creations, please go to the challenge blog! Good luck!

And if that's not enough, there are some new release digi stamps over in the Jellypark shop. I'll be blogging what I've made with them over the next day or so, but lets say that they are very cute, very easy to work with and a very good price!

The female version will be blogged later today so watch out for her!

My card qualifies for the following challenges:
