A Christmas Carol



   Well, getting near the finishing post for this year's Christmas cards. I have made several of these in varying colours. The image is taken from the LOTV  'A Christmas carol' stamp. I have coloured it using Promarkers and added Stickles to the falling snow and also to that lying on the ground. I then dusted varying lilac and blue distress ink around the edges before matting it onto lilac card. I also coloured card candi using Promarkers before attaching them and then finished the card with a simple peel off.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Incy Wincy - let it snow
   Kaboodle Doodles - non traditional Christmas colours
   Whoopsi Daisy - Christmas using non traditional colours
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra - anything Christmas
   Digi Designs -Christmas in non traditional colours
   Glitter n Sparkle - show some blue
   SweetPea Stampers - it's cold outside
