Over at the colour challenge for The Outlawz, Susan has chosen the colour palette for this week, and great colours they are. The twist is ...add a snowman or snow..... Well now in temps of between 30 and 34 deg C, for over 2 weeks now, I would welcome a snowman to cool me off, but I don't think he will last very long, so I will leave him on my card.
Susan is also sponsoring the challenges this month, so you have a chance to win a $15 gift voucher to the store of your choice. The DT have made some lovely cards for inspiration, so I do hope you have a little time to craft midst all the Christmas preparations to come along and join us.
The snowman image is a freebie from Anne, who is one of the DT members at The Outlawz and she has kindly given us a number of images to download on her website. Head on over and see them for yourself.
The Christmas cracker shape was an idea I got from an Advent Calendar gift at Card Making Downloads,
I tweaked it a bit to fit the size that I required, and didn't use the paper and pictures that came with it.
I cut it out of red cardstock and then layered green patterned paper with snowflakes onto that.
The image was coloured with Distress inkpads and some glitter added in various places, then cut out with an oval MFD. Attached this to an oval scolloped MFD.
The sentiment is a Nellie Snellen stamp
A yellow ribbon with a bow to finish off.
