Snow friends


Hi everyone, here's a card for the Cupcake Challenge and the theme this week is 'inspiration from home' I chose the sparkly white twigs in my vase as the starting point for the card and used the extremely cute snow people download image from Sally-Anne at Grab-a-doodle-do, I also made a tag with the Santa image from the same set but forgot to put it in the photograph, a bit of a spooky photo when I look at it after upload, it's all sparkly and pretty IRL!!!

Image from Christmas set by Grab-a-doodle-do
Paper: Silver grey pearlescent card, pale grey bazzil card
Colouring: Promarkers, sparkle gel pen, silver glitter, black fineliner, black soot distress ink
Embellishments: glitter, distressing tool, sparkle gel pen, red gem, silver metallic ribbon

TFL. Back soon,
Chris
