Winter playtime

   We have had a spell of frost the last few days and it reminded me that I had resolved to make one Christmas card a week to alleviate the stress of Christmas card making at the end of the year. So here is my first Christmas card for 2014!!
   I matted and layered contemporary Christmas paper from Papermania and purple mirri card onto white card having first wrapped ribbon around the paper. Onto the ribbon I glued snowflakes and gem stones.
   The image  'Wonderful Christmas' from Joanna Sheen's Giordano Studio stamp collection is coloured using Promarkers. distress ink and glitter. I matted it onto purple mirri card cut out using a Spellbinders floral oval die and fixed it to the card with foam pads.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
