Singing Snowmen - Get Creative Challenges # 3

Good morning to all my dear friends and fellow bloggers. Today it is time for my second post for the Pink Team in Get Creative Challenges. The theme is "Christmas" which suits me down to the ground.  I absolutely love making Christmas cards.

My card uses the digi image " Caroling Snowmen" from The Stamping Boutique

My Card

I'm afraid it's not a particularly good photo because there is so much shine bouncing off the mirri card and the foiled backing papers.  Unfortunately the weather is so awful that I really needed flash to take the picture.  When I tried without flash the picture was very dark.  If it brightens up I'll try again without the flash.

6" x 6" card cut from red card stock
 Backing papers - Twinkle from Craftwork Cards
Silver Candi - Craftwork Cards
Music die cut - Virtuoso from Memory Box

After colouring the image I just added a little - okay, a lot - glitter.  But it's a Christmas card so glitter and sparkle is almost obligatory!!

We would love you to join in our challenge this time and I'm sure there will be no shortage of Christmas cards to post. Please pop across and check out what the rest of the DT have made and then add your creation.

The weather is gloomy here too Christine :( I hope the next few months pass as quick as the last few have and we will be enjoying the Spring again before you know it :)
I love this card with all it's foiling, despite the difficulties with taking a photo I think it's come out well. A sweet image too and matching notes die.
