ABC Christmas Challenge - Q is for...

It's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge...and this time Lacey is our host. The theme for the challenge is:

'Q is for Quote plus Image'
Basically, we'd like to see some kind of wording on the front of your cards this week.

We have two wonderful sponsors for this that means two wonderful prizes!

Firstly, we have Robyn's Fetish

The prize is 5 digital products of the winner's choice from the Robyn's Fetish store.

Our second sponsor is Stamping with Brenda
Brenda's prize is a 3 month subscription to her 'How to WOW Paper Crafting Techniques Club'

Ok, so here's my card...I used an image from Robyn's Fetish called 'Twas the night before', which I printed out a couple of times, so that I could decoupage the snow on the chimney. I used watercolour pencils to colour the image, and added 'Crystal' Stickles to the snow. The papers are from the 'Wonderful Winter' pad by My Mind's Eye.

Here's a close up showing the layers:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies...and a couple of guest designers...please visit the ABC Christmas Challenge.

Helen this is great. I love how the paper matches the sentiment! I also saw your post on your simple bubble Christmas Trees. I think that is what I am going to do for my mass Christmas card production for next year! (They always get done in Jan/Feb)
