Snowy Christmas

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from the Monthly Team at Forever Friends; for December we want to see Christmas cards....

The sponsor for the Forever Friends favorite is Meljen's Designs; the winner will receive 4 digis of their choice.  I want to thank Meljen's for the darling owl digi that I used "thank you" Meljen's!

The sponsor for the randomly picked winner is Di's Digi Downloads; the winner will receive a voucher to their webstore.

I kept my card clean and simple to keep the focus on the cute image, which is colored with pencils.  I did a bit of distressing, and added a ribbon and sparkly snowflake for embellishing.  (The snowflake die came in a fun package from Tracie, who is in my Secret Sister group...thank you, Tracie!)

Image: Meljen's Designs Digital Stamp
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Lovely Lilac, Bo Bunny DP, Doodlebug Sugar Coated CS
Embellies: White Satin Ribbon (stash), PTI Button
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, MFT Snowflake Die-namics Die, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's creations.  How about making a Christmas card to play have all month!
