ABC Christmas Challenge - W is for...

I'm back today with another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge, where the theme is:

'W is for Winter Sports'
(Think skiing, skating, sledging etc)

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:


The prize from Simon Says Stamp is a $15 voucher to spend in their wonderful store!


And from the Stamp Fairy...3 digital images of the winner's choice!

I chose skating as my winter sport last week...and have gone with skiing this time using an adorable Stamp Fairy image called 'Barry Winter - Skis'. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added some Stickles to the snow and snowflakes. For the background, I embossed some Core'Dinations card using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder, sanding over the raised areas, and distressing the edges a little.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
