April Challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning, over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' we have a new Challenge for you,  this month the optional theme is 'Monochromatic', the DT all used the theme but it isn't necessary to follow it if you prefer not to! Personally, I love the look of monochromatic cards so a great theme for me. 

I made a z fold card base from kraft card. The  white cardstock  is embossed with a falling snow embossing folder( I love this ef and use it loads but unfortunately have no idea of the make!) which is matted onto  coppery brown card.   My image is an old favourite from Mo Manning...I love this sweet fairy and again I've used it loads, don't think of coloured it brown before though! The sentiment is from a PB set of stamps.  I die cut with a circle die, inked the edges and matted it onto the same brown cardstock.  I added two die cut snowflakes to finish.

My teamies have created some stunning cards to inspire you this month, please hop over HERE to take a look and to add your own fabulous's never too early to start on your Christmas cards, and you can make anything you like as long as it's Christmas related!
Thanks for visiting

What a super cute card! I love the shape and the way you have coloured that cutie. I have always pictured him in blue tones. You have made me look at him in a different way :D

Sigh - your darling little Mo Manning image is beyond sweet in every way! I especially like the deep, rich color you've chosen, and the coloring in the image full of highlights, Chris! It's amazing how you have captured the detail in his little wings. It's a beautiful Z-fold card!
