Christmas impressions !

It dawned on me yesterday that I had vowed to make at least a couple of Christmas cards every month so that I don't have to madly throw them together in early December like I normally do !

Now it is March and I have made a total of ZERO Christmas cards ! So I thought that I'd make a start and try to catch up !
I have to say that I enjoyed making it but it felt a bit strange in March, although it is def' cold enough to feel like Christmas -it's freezing today and I'm tucked up inside with the heating on !

I used some embossed bazzil card for my card base and then made the ink embossed panel with my spellbinders impressabilities with the snowflakes. I used a pearlescent card and also a brilliance ink pad and it looks great - I'm really pleased with it !

The image is another Kanban clear stamp which I have coloured with a mixture of copics, promarkers and pencils. I also added some glitter for a little twinkle !
The merry Christmas banner is a clear stamp from a HOTP kit and I blinged that up too !

Then I just added 3 pink dew drops to balance it up a bit.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;

Winter wonderland Challenge
- Animals
Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge - Embossing or paper peicing
Creative Belli Blog - Animals

Thanks for taking a look x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
