Christmas card no. 2

Hi there,

It's time to show you my Christmas Card no. 2. I had soooo much fun colouring her and putting this Card together, so I hope you like her as much as I do.

I used My Bestie Img833 and I love her because she's perfect to colour for a beginner like me. There are not too many small details, where I could go outside the lines. Until I feel confident to try digis with more and finer details, I'm very happy to "make do" with this kind. I don't know if Sherri Ann Baldy had beginners in mind when she designed her, but she's perfect for it.

I've die cut the snowflakes and the snowman. I did try to make a coloured version of him, but that only resulted in colouring all over the place, so I decided to go all White on him.

The Winter Wonderland sentiment is from Scrappers Delight and very suitable for my project.

I made small snowballs out of cotton and made a pile of them. 

My backing paper is glitter paper and I think, that it looks like sparkling snow.

It is so much fun, when an idea pops into my head and I have to figure out, how to make it. I sometimes use hours looking for something specific or trying to make something. It's so satisfying when it Works out. The snowballs were quite easy to think of though :-)

This project will enter the following competitions:

Be Happy Crafting!
