Crafting for all Seasons #40 Thank You Card

Time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is Thank You cards. We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Bugaboo and Pure Innocence Stamps. I've used an image from Pure Innocence Stamps.



I think my fellow DT members may have thought I'd flipped completely when I requested a snowman image for a thank you challenge.......but there was method in my madness. I needed a festive card for a card swap for November so killing two birds with one stone and all that lol.
Image is coloured with promarkers before being die cut with an oval nestie and layered onto a scalloped nestie which I've coloured with distress ink. Papers were a magazine freebie. Lattice dies are from Marianne Design, snowflake from Memory Box and punch from Martha Stewart. Ribbon, peel off sentiment and silver gem from my stash.


Guess who forgot to check which way round the base card was before sticking the BP down securely...yep that would be me! At least it was completely upside down and not just at right angles. So if my layout looks a little odd that's why!!



Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.
