CHNC Challenge 84 - Favourite colours

Hi everyone, I'm really happy to be Guest Designer for Crafty Hazelnut this week. Hazel's was one of the first challenges I ever entered when I started blogging earlier this year. The challenge this week is to make a Christmas card using your favourite colours. I just love the combination of pink and black, although I've struggled with the photo colours, but have never made a Christmas card using it....until now...
I've had these backing papers in my stash for years. I must admit I had my stash for years before I became seriously addicted to crafting earlier this year.... All papers are edged with Spun Sugar and matted with black card. The image is Totally Gorjuss (Winter Wonder) and this is thef first card I've made with it. It's also the first card I completed with my copics. The snowflake is a Spellbinder one and I've added heat set gems. I've used Sakura glitter pens on the dots on her hat and wellies.

I've decorated the inside too...
I hope you'll join us this week at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge and maybe you'll be lucky and win 3 packs of die cuts of your choice from Crimson Cloud.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Milkcoffee challenge - tic tac toe (2 or more designer papers, Sentiment, embossing on snowflake)
Crafty Catz - Pink 

Thanks for visiting, I hope to see you again soon
