Snow Angel

Hi folks,

I'm rather late posting on here again tonight.  I've been running around all evening getting my OH ready for Belladrum  which is a music festival held near to Inverness.  He was semi organised but the weather has taken a turn for the worse so we had to track down wellies as well as the beer, water, etc he had planned on taking!!!  Fingers crossed the weather improves for the weekend or it will be a bit of a wash out.

Tonight's card is another Christmas one.  I actually made it a couple of evenings ago but I hadn't got around to uploading the photo.  The digi stamp is from The Paper Shelter and is part of a challenge prize I won a wee while back.  Iona and I both had a copy to colour in which we did while watching Beethoven the 5th!

I hadn't realised I'd made the image so large until I tried to fit it on a card, it didn't leave much room for anything else!  Anyway, the rather large image has been coloured with promarkers and then sprayed lightly with glitter spray for a slightly shimmery finish.  The papers I've used are all Boofle by Docrafts and everything has been layered up with kraft cardstock.  I've also used kraft for the Paula Pascual sentiment and the punched snowflakes.  The snowflake corner die is by Memory Box.  The card is finished off with various buttons tied with paper cord and some pale blue gems.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

  13. Hi, followed your link at Crafty Hazelnuts, and loved your sweet digi card. I'm running into the same thing you described, as I'm learning to use digi-s. It's sometimes difficult to make yourself scale them down, then you have to make a huge card! This one is very pretty, and love your coloring. Great use of the MB corner too. Just joined as your newest follower, and hope you'll have time to visit me when you can. TFS
