Wrap up warm!

Good morning, welcome to the weekend and our new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. Our theme this week is 'wrap up warm'  -good advice in the UK this time of year! It has been very mild here, so far but definitely noticed more of a nip in the air the last couple of days.
I decided to make another Christmas card as the date is creeping (galloping??!) closer and closer. My image is a sweet digi from The Paper Shelter, which I coloured with copics and fussy cut. The tree die is Sizzix and the foliage die MB. Not sure about the poinsettia.
There's some great inspiration to be had from visiting Sweet Stampin' Challenge blog, my talented teamies have come up trumps as always and there's a lovely prize on offer from our lovely sponsor this week Bunny Zoe's Crafts, so just click here to have a look!
 Thanks for visiting, have a great weekend.

  13. Hey Chris! I really like your design on this one! I came back twice to look at how you created that background in the oval... those birch trees and the background beyond them of the grey & white snowflakes is a perfect combo! Love your coloring of the image and that you fussy cut her - very nice! I also like the "Winter Wishes" sentiment in the lower corner. Thank you for playing Bingo with us and thank you for sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments for our BINGO + Sentiment challenge!
