Another Christmas card

So what did you think of Emily's mini release yesterday? Don't you just love those Uptown Girls? If you haven't had a chance to check them out, hop over to Bloggabella and you can view the sneak peaks there.

To keep on target with my Christmas cards, I'm trying to do at least one Christmas card a week.  I coloured this one while I was off on Monday. It's a Mo image called A snowman and a Cardinal.  

I did colour up this image last year, but I had a vision of doing it in purples.  So.. went through my odds and ends of christmas paper and found this piece from Bo Bunny. Perfect - just the colour I had in mind.  As usual I stamped it on bella's bestest paper and coloured with prisma colour pencils and blended with gamsol.

I also used last years release snowflake from spellbinders.  I cut it out of a piece of shimmer purple bazzill - kind of hard to see the shimmer though. For the snow on the ground I applied a thin layer of glossy accents the poured on some Diamond Dust.  I've had this for a couple of years and think I only used it once! It looks like shaved pieced of glass, really sparkly too. Also added some diamond dust to the stems of the snowflake.  For the pompom on his hat I applied some white flock.

Don't forget about our challenge this friday - Halloween.  You still have time to send your card off to Emily.

Thanks for stopping by,
