Fishing Buddies

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, Bank Holiday tomorrow, but I've got to work. I've managed to find time over the weekend to make another Christmas Card - my collection is growing, at this rate I might have enough ready and wont need to panic make at the last minute. My card has been inspired by the ABC Christmas challenge where the theme is 'icy', the snowflake doily and the ice have been painted with glamour dust glitter paint and they are a lot more sparkly in real life. I decided to stay with the white theme and emboss the greeting with white embossing powder which doesn't really show up in the photograph.


papers - white card embossed with cuttlebug 'swiss dots/snowdots
papermania 'snow flurry'
image - lotv 'fishing buddies'
sentiment - lotv
marianne creatable die - snowflake doily
stickles gilitter - 'icicle/frosted lace'
glamour dust glitter paint - 'iridescent'
coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
