Winter Wishes

Hi everyone, I'm here with another christmas card and hopefully I will get all done in time for christmas this year! I can't take any of the credit for the design of this as my hubby picked everything out from an assortment of crafty stash that was on the table and he also told me where to place everything.... I was just his assistant and did the sticking.

The fabulous image of the pets looking at the snowman is from the LOTV art pad 'christmas eve' and was matted onto a piece of gold mirricard which had accidentally been debossed in the embossing folder. The background paper is Bo Bunny, the snowflakes are a Memory box die with card candi centres, the gems are from my stash and to finish just added a recycled sentiment (saved from last years shop bought cards).

Unfortunately the photo doesn't show it too well but IRL the card really gives the impression of a lovely golden sparkle and shine just like you get from the winter sun on snow.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Fussy and Fancy Friday 'ice / snow with texture and sparkles'
ABC Christmas 'W for wishes'
Crafty Creations 'animals'
Noor Design UK 'winter'
HLS November 'anything goes with dies'

Thanks for popping by and I hope you all have a great weekend.
