Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 99

It's my turn to host the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time, and I've chosen to get away from the hot, sunny summer and turn to winter! (Hey, not everybody likes hot weather ...) So, I want to see your creations which include some Christmas ice and snow! Snowmen/women, icy landscapes, anything cold and wintery, as long as that's the main theme of the card. A single snowflake as an embellishment won't do!

Our sponsors this time are:
and



I've chosen an image from Lil Diva called Winterville, which is available here via the Stitchy Bear shop. It's a really pretty image and doesn't need a lot to make a lovely card.

And I've kept it fairly simple! I did a little colouring with Derwent Coloursoft pencils, then added quite a lot of Glamour Dust to give the snow some sparkle. The paper is from a pad that came as a magazine freebie, and I finished with a couple of die cut snowflakes courtesy of a Marianne Creatables die set and my trusty Big Shot Pro.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Creative Fingers where anything goes,
Sister Act where anything goes,

And, in some respects similar and in others very different, I've used a Michael Powell image which I stamped and coloured using Promarkers.


I do like his rather quirky style - which is unusual for me, as I tend to like straight lines and symmetry! The images are quite fun to colour too! In the background, I've made some paper using distress inks, stencils, ink dusters and rubber stamps. The holly sprig is from a Joanna Sheen Signature die.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania where they want die cuts,
Lady Anne's Challenge where they want us to use a stamp,
