First Christmas Card

Hey all,

Today I made my first Christmas card of the year! I'd been thinking about making one for a while, and then today, an idea came into my head so I had to do it :) I'm pretty happy with the outcome! I'm going to try and make at least one every week from now on if I can!

So here it is! The papers were in my stash from last Christmas as were the gems. The image and sentiment are LOTV, and the ribbon and snowflake charm are from Ribbon Girl. I coloured it in with Promarkers and topped it off with some Stickles :) 

A close of up this, I think it's just such a cute stamp!

A closeup of the charm, it's a bit camouflaged in the main picture.

I used a sketch from Papertake Weekly for this card, and the colour combo came from photo inspiration from this week's Winter Wonderland challenge. I got the idea for the music theme from Cupcake Craft :) 

So the challenges I would like to enter this into are:
Winter Wonderland Photo Inspiration - I took the colour scheme and red ribbon from this.

So that's it for me for now, thanks for looking :)
