Crafting for all Seasons #91 "Tis the Season"

Good morning all.

Today it's time for our next challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Tis the Season". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. Our sponsor this time Inky Impressions who gave the DT images to work with.

I've used Merry Kiss-mas Penguins and Digijoys from our sponsor and coloured with promarkers using stickles to highlight, before die-cutting. Circle dies and snowflake (an older die) beneath are all from Spellbinders. Create a Card die from Die'sire which I've inked with DI whilst still in the die. Gems from my stash.

Side view showing the layers and all finished inside.

Fabulous Sponsor 2014
