Creatalicious Challenges #4

For this months challenge at Bizzy Bec's Creatalicious Challenges we want to see cards with a Christmas theme, that include snowflakes, with lots of sparkle &/or glitter!

I made a Joy Fold card. So please indulge me with the length of this post, so I can show you my photos. I could have taken more, LOL! My images are some of the new Whiff of Joy Xmas Gnomes. They're just so cute!

It is hard to see all the sparkle & glitter I used. It was so dull when I took the photos! You'll have to look closely to see it. I did not go overboard with the snowflakes. I made mine with a Woodware punch, a Cuttlebug die & a gorgeous silver spacer from Bec's shop.

The DPs are Melissa Frances & are a fab mix of cute & classy!

Finally, here's a close up of those adorable gnomes. I coloured them with my distress inks & added stickles & glitter to bling them up a bit! The green card stock I used came pre-glittered & looks even better IRL.

I hope you'll now hop on over to the Creatalicious Challenges blog to see the fabulous creations of my fellow DT members. No excuses for not joining in, you have a whole month to enter & you are bound to be making an Xmas card or too over the coming month, so why not enter the challenge & maybe even win a fab prize! See you there!!

Thanks for looking & perserving through this mammoth post! Hope you are having a great weekend.

Big Hugs,

Andie xx
