It's Christmas!

Good morning crafters!

It's me again, here to tell you about this week's challenge over on the 2 Sisters Challenge blog.

This week the theme is WHITE, BLACK + ONE OTHER.
The sponsor this week is the fabulous MELJENS.
Here is my card. Isn't this image so cute? I coloured 'him' with Copics and for the snow on the ground, his hat and gloves i painted them with acrylic paint and then sprinkled with Ranger embossing tinsel to give it dimension and sparkle (although it is not very obvious in the photo).  The white panel behind the image is also embossed and hard to see in this photo too! The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm. Hope you like it.

Challenges i would like to enter:
Please pop over to 2 Sisters and take a peek at the gorgeous DT inspiration.  We would love it if you joined us in this challenge.
Hugs, Jill x
