DT call

There's a new Christmas Challenges (with sketches) blog on the block and they have a DT call out. As Christmas cards are my favourite cards of the year (except when they all need made in November lol) I decided to enter with this card:
I've followed the given sketch using three variations of the same backing paper from Bearly Mine, these have been layered digitally in Publisher onto pearlised card and matted onto white pearlised card which has been punched with a snowflake PATP. Tilda has been stamped in Memento ink and coloured with promarkers with a little highlighting from a Sakura pen, she's then been mounted with silicon gel onto a nesties beaded die. Card is finished with some raffia, white ribbon, a sentiment, white poinsettia flower, snowflake buttons and some pearls from my stash.
And a view of the inside showing off the lovely Bearly Mine papers.
Challenges I'm entering:
Just Magnolia - anything goes
Kaboodle Doodles - lots of layers
Ribbon Carousel - shabby chicness
Divas by Design - anything goes
Paper Play Challenges - show us your style
Shelley's Image Blog - sugar and spice
