Celebrate the Holidays

It is time to celebrate the Holidays over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog. The challenge is to create something with the theme of Hallowe'en, Thanksgiving or Christmas. I have chosen to ink up Silent Night Tilda and make another Christmas card. I figure the more that I make now the less likely that I will be scrambling when December rolls around.



I had a lot of fun putting this card together. It is based on another a fantastic sketch by Dawny P over at Just Magnolia and has been put together using more of my favourite Basic Grey papers.


Tilda has once again been coloured with Copics. I have added a little chalk around the edges of the background although it is difficult to see in my photos. Polar White Flower Soft has been used to provide a blanket of fresh fallen snow and Stickles add some shimmer to the snowflakes that are still falling.

If you get a chance be sure to have a peek at the Hop over to Simon Says Stamp as they are running a blog hop with this challenge and the designers there have lots of lovely inspiration that is sure to put you in the Holiday spirit.
