Just Christmas & Birthday Cards Challenge #14

This weeks challenge over at Just Christmas & Birthday Cards is a sketch by Tanja. Keeping up so far with my one Christmas card a week....

The image is 'Mimi Ice-Skating' from Pink Gem Designs, coloured with copics then added glamour dust to her fur trims, red stickles to the berries on the holly and glittered the edges of image with gold. I used clear sakura stardust on the snow and added a little diamond glaze to each flake. The background is metallic card from Kanban. Gold ribbon from my crafting stash and red printed ribbon is Anita's. The sentiment disc was done using a free embossing template from one of the craft magazines and I've highlighted the writing with a red sakura stardust pen.

Due to the metallic background it was hard to get a good photo and this was about the best of the lot, without too much reflection.

Now I'm sure no one else would do this, but it's not a good idea to get the sneeze's when you have a glitter pot open, there's a strong possibility that your crafting work area and yourself will end up covered in glitter, take it from someone who found this out this
