Another Christmas Card


I've used the Polycraft image (Cherry Kisses Snowball) several times this year, but always as a 'stand alone' image. This time, I combined it with another Polycraft freebie - (trees background) and added a Merry Christmas in an outline font. I printed it on Ryman Ink Jet card and coloured the image with Promarkers.

Because of the combination of images, the result was fairly big, so instead of using a backing paper, I decided to use some ribbon to frame the image. I mitred some red/cream ribbon I've had for a few years, and added some detail with some green gingham, and finished with a couple of bows and a stick on snowflake with a sticky gem.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges: Digital Tuesday where the requirement is to use a digi image (I used two), ribbon, buttons and bling. (Two out of three.)
Anything Goes where Christmas has come early,
Fab'n'Funky where they want a digital image,
Create4Fun who also want a digital image, and
Craftilicious where Anything Goes.
