Crafty Catz Challenge #487- Blue Christmas

Good morning, Friday the 13th-hope no one is superstitious! It's time for the last Challenge this year at Crafty Catz, we have a fantastic sponsor this week...none other than the amazing Bugaboo 
Our lovely host this week is Ginny and she's picked the theme of  Blue Christmas, which is, as always, optional. I made a concertina card using a Tattered Lace die that I'd only looked at and put back into the packet looked a bit complicated to me, but once I'd worked out where to stick the tags (!!) it was ok! The cute image on the front is of course from BugabooWinter Cat and Puppy Dog, coloured with copics. I also used a Merry Christmas and large snowflake die cut. I have heat embossed with  chunky white EP around the frames and added a few small die cut snowflakes. Not the easiest card to photograph but you can get an idea from the photos beneath.

We hope you choose to play along with this last challenge for 2019, please just click HERE to hop over and see the beautiful cards the team have made, they really have excelled themselves this week.
Thanks for visiting

Please forgive me but I did swear when I saw this wonderful creation, it wasn't evil swearing though. Why have you not entered this is other challenges, you'd wipe the floor.
Well, it's ok, cute image, a few nice snowflake and circle dies, pretty run of the mill really.
Go to the top of the class.
