CHNC challenge 94: snowflakes

It's amazing how the weeks go by - it doesn't seem possible that we're getting well into October and not too long now before we need to have all those Christmas cards made. If you haven't yet joined in my CHNC challenges, now is a good time, so why not head over to CHNC challenge 94 and make a card that includes snowflakes - easy peasy!!

The challenge this week is once again being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, so supplied me and my Guest Designer, Kim, with digital papers and stamps.

For my card I've used the 'snowman snowflakes'. I coloured the image with a mixture of copics and Marvy le plume alcohol pens, cutting it out with a labels die cut. The almost transparent ribbon with rainbow colours across the bottom is an offcut that just adds a touch of sparkle. The big snowflake is one by Anna Griffin - it was originally cream, so I coloured with an alcohol pen and added the stars from Poundland.

I used the sketch for Always playing with paper merry Monday 36:

And I used colours for Christmas card challenges week 45:

  7. What an adorable snowman, Hazel! That's the kind we make here in NC. Our snow doesn't roll and pack well and there usually isn't much of it. So we build skinny snowmen and have such fun doing it! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday!
