3 Challenges in one



Today's super challenge is brought to you by Kristina's colour challenge #54, Winter Wonderland and Christmas Stampin all year. Well I have had a fun on weekend with work and cocktail parties, so no time for stampin. So today I decided to have a look at what challenges where going around. Then I came up with this great idea for combining some challenges with a colour challenge. Kristina's colours with let it snow from winter wonderland and Christmas all year needed buttons and ribbons. Was very happy with this combination.

I used the retired stitched snowman, snow flurries and the hostess set best yet. I had this great snow flake D.S.P that I got from a craft shop and never used. So am very excited that I'm finally using it. I coloured in using my inks and aqua pen using Kristina's colour challenge. But I must admit I did add choc chip for his branches and blush blossom for his cheeks. And I finished off with some really cool snow flakes that I found in a craft shop in Bright last year. I really enjoy making this card.

Thanks for looking
