It's Christmas at The Outlawz.

Good morning and a happy Tuesday to all my blogging friends,

I am so happy that it is only at The Outlawz colour challenge that it is Christmas. I would so not be ready for it now, but it isn't Christmas yet and I do have a card to show you.

This week it is the turn of my teamie Laurian to choose the photo and colour palette and the theme is 'Make it Christmas'. Laurian has gone for non traditional colours for her challenge.

Once again the sponsor is Stitchy Bear Stamps and the DT have all used one of their Christmas images, so please go and have a look at the gorgeous cards they have made.

This is my card using the image Doodledeer.

I saw a card similar to this on the Crealies site made by Wilma and I decided to use this for inspiration.

I coloured the background with Pan Pastels. Used stencils to create some features.  Stamped snowflakes with white chalk, Embossed some others with white embossing powder Added peeloff corners and stars

The ornaments are cut with Spellbinder ornaments and printed the image onto them. The sentiment was also stamped onto two ornaments that were cut from metallic papers.

Added 3 Christmas embellishments on the front. A snowman, holly with berries and a snowflake. I have had these for so long and thought they would be perfect to hold the ornaments in place.

It was a little difficult to get a good photo and the metallic papers don't really show up as well as they do on the card.

I will enter some challenges with this card.
