Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Recipe

It's Mel's turn to set the theme for this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has cooked up a recipe of:

'3 Snowflakes, 2 Circles & Some Lace'

We are sponsored this month by Kenny K Downloads, who have also very generously given the DT members some images to work with this week. I chose this fabby Santa, and coloured him with water colour pencils. I used my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' & 'Swiss Dots' folders (available here at the Secret Crafter) to emboss some Kraft card for the background. I used Cuttlebug dies to cut the snowflakes (for once not adding any glitter, as I wanted this card to have a more masculine feel), and Nesties (available here from the Secret Crafter) for the circles. The raffia lace is from Hobbycraft, and the sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration, please check out the fabulous samples by my lovely Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge DT buddies.
