Presents for 2

I'm still managing to make at least one Christmas card a week...got a lovely big box full already! lolI followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers for this one...using an adorable Lili of the Valley bear ('Presents for 2'). The papers are from the '29th Street Market' collection by My Mind's Eye...the plain colours have been embossed with my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and 'Snow Dots' folders...perfect for Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club 'Snowflakes' challenge. I sanded the raised areas to bring out the detail, and then distressed the edges with my distressing tool...so I'm also going to enter this card into the Crazy Challenge, where the theme is 'Distress It!'. The snowflakes were cut using a Cuttlebug die.
