Vibrant colours for Christmas!

Good afternoon, all! I hope you're well, and enjoying the weekend.

I am finally getting into the swing of making my Christmas cards. Here's another one using the cute LotV image 'Dancing in the Snow.' In fact, I found the coloured image while sorting my stash - she was coloured in Spectrum Noirs earlier this year, so no list, I'm afraid.

The papers are from an old Dovecraft stack, 'Tis the Season.' They are nice and bright! I used a Spellbinders Star Circle die for the image mat, a Whiff of Joy die for the glittered snowflakes, and a Memory Box Holly border die with a scrap of pearlised green card. The holly berries are pearls from Hobbycraft.

The gorgeous ribbon is from the Pinflair shop in Hertford (only 50p a metre!) and so is the gold star. I glittered the little girl's fur trim and also the snow, though it isn't showing too well in the pic.

I'm entering">ABC Christmas Challenge
whose theme is 'Vibrant Colours.'

I missed the boat for">Come and Get It Challenge
where I found the great sketch!!
Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Gorgeous card Mags. I won her in Blog Candy last year. I inked her up and she is still lying uncoloured in a box. I should show her some love shouldn't I?!
