Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 80


Our challenge this fortnight, hosted by team-mate Fiona, is a photo inspiration challenge.
Make a card or project inspired by the following photo. You can take inspiration from any part of it really, from the actual image or from the colours.
We are sponsored again by
and


The things that stood out for me when looking at that photo, are the colours, the Christmas theme and the fact that the tree looks so sparkly. So, that's what I combined to come up with my card for this challenge:



Now, when my children were small, a regular part of the run-up to Christmas, was watching 'The Snowman'. The stamp I used comes from a set of stamps from Crafter's Companion, and I coloured the image with Promarkers.

In order to get the sparkle, I got out my Shimmer Paper. I used a sheet of the fairly neutral shade in the background, and cut lots of snowflakes from the blue/green variety, using dies from Marianne, Spellbinders and Cuttlebug. I matted using some Nestibilities, and it's complete. (And since I didn't go too 'dimensional', I'll even be able to post it without a 'large' stamp!)

Hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crazy Amigos where the theme is 'colours of winter',
Ladybug Crafts Ink where the theme is 'snowflakes',
Artistic Inspirations where anything goes,
Bunny Zoe where the theme is 'winter',
Hooked on Craft where the theme is 'Christmas',
