First Christmas card!

I'd been full of good intentions to make a Christmas card every week, but it kinda didn't happen ;)  I think every year I promise that there's going to be no mad rush again this year!
I was very lucky to win this lovely stamp from Di over at Pixie's Crafty workshop (she has some fab prizes for her challenges every week!)
My BG is embossed with an old Cuttlebug snowflake folder.  Image coloured with watercolour pencils and then loads of gloss and glitter added for lots of sparkle.

Day 20 of the Daily Marker colouring challenge - I can't quite believe I've managed to keep up so far!


  1. Hi Lynne - so lovely to see you using the stamp you won! It's a beauty isn't it and I love the colours you used too!

  14. Fab Christmas card! I've only got a few done (maybe 8 or 10). I should have at least 20 done by now, so I've been procrastinating as usual, too. Oh well, we'll both get them done in the end. We always do, don't we?

  15. Sorry to be so late commenting, what a super texture card!
    Love that festive embossing folder
    Thanks for joining our challenge
