December Challenge at Crafty Calendar....Let it snow!

It's time for our December Challenge at Crafty Calendar and I hope we're not tempting fate with this one...'Let it Snow!' It's lovely to look at (when it's fresh fallen and sparkly- not when it's turned to dirty slush and hard packed ice!) but for me the novelty soon wears off! I do have a lovely memory from 2 years ago though when I looked out at my neighbour's little lad ...the delight on his face was a picture and I could hear him singing right down the road....and he was on his way to school! We only had about an inch of snow too!
Anyway, back to the challenge. We have 2 fabulous sponsors
                                                                  Di's Digistamps

-about Fabrika Fantasy:
 We are a small creative team writing and illustrating fantasy adventure and children's books. We love to draw fun and amusing characters, and are happy to offer them to you as digital stamps. We hope you like these digital images and they help make your creations bright, interesting and memorable!  

The DT were given some sweet images to play with, I chose to use the Young Deer image which comes in colour or outline. The coloured version is gorgeous but was too bright for the card I wanted to make so  I printed the outline version onto kraft and coloured it with polychromos for a softer look. I fussy cut him and placed him on a 'snowbank' in front of the aperture which is part filled with diecut silver birches.

 I added a lovely MB holly and pine branch  cut from glitter card.

The DT have made some beautiful cards to inspire you this month , just click here to take a look, and of course we're all looking forward to see what you make of this challenge, so don't miss the chance to join us for the last time this year!
