Welcome Christmas



Hi everyone!  Well I am finally back in the groove after our trip, and had some fun playing the challenges.  

Anyone dreaming of a white Christmas?  Well, I am not sure I'm ready for the white stuff, but I did use a digital image and sentiment from My Digital Studio's Welcome Home set, as well as Spellbinder dies, to create a snowy scene for Christmas. This was a very easy card to create, and it's postage friendly too.  I kept my embellishments to a minimum and only included a bow made with a MS punch, some Flower Soft mixed with glitter, and I also added a bit of bling to the bow.  Although it doesn't show in the photo, my card sparkles nicely IRL.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
CCEE Stampers (CCDD1146) -- 2 diecuts or 2 punches
Fab' n' Funky Challenge #99 -- Baby, it's cold outside

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
