Snow and Sparkle

Our new challenge at Holly Jolly for the next two weeks is a fun Christmas challenge theme of Snow and Sparkle.


So very traditional Christmas and we have some fabulous sponsor’s too including Sami Stamps, QKR Stampede and Stitchy Bear.


I have used a sweet penguin image from Stitchy Bear and coloured the image in with Copic Markers.


I have also used some new SU DSP from the Home for Christmas collection which is a new In Colour Mint Macaron and has some soft falling snow.


I have also used some of the new SU Snowflake Elements snow flakes which are in a Kraft/Crumb Cake colour and I am sure I could dauber some different colour on to them but not for this time.


Here is my card:

The cardstock used is Basic Grey, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron and Xpress It Blending Cardstock.


Some SU Silver Glitter Paper and I have also added some White Opal Liquid Pearls to the snowflakes which are part of the image and also some extra.


Here is a close up of the this cutie:
