Cool Yule

So far this month is shaping up like last month, busy, busy, busy! I finally got my card done, (it had been coloured since Friday) and put together for Craft Your Passion's challenge which Doodle Pantry is  sponsoring. The challenge started Monday and is an anything goes one, thank goodness!

I used Doodle Pantry's Snowflake Sheep stamp, too funny! You would not believe how hard it is to photograph purple! The ribbon in the photo is a bright, bright purple, the same colour (almost) as the sheep's mitts, hat and scarf. It sure doesn't look like it in the photo and I took a ton of them. 

In real life the two different colours looks so good together (brilliant blue, bright purple). I put liquid pearls on the snowflakes and glitter on the snow. Hop on over to Craft Your Passion and give the challenge a try. If you use a Doodle Pantry image you can enter our challenge too.

  2. Don't you just hate it when pictures don't reflect what your card is showing. I know what you mean when you said you 'took a lot', it really means A LOT LOL. I think the card is fabulous and the snowflakes are gorgeous, love what you did to them with that liquid pearl! The night sky turned out good too! Fab card!
