Ready for Christmas

Hi Everyone

Today is the start of the new challenge over at Unicorn Challenge 

The theme for this month is Add a Charm.  I hope you can come on over and play along with us this month.

For my DT card I made my Daughter Chloe's Christmas Card.  She is 8 years old (9 at end of December) and she adores elephants and when I recently saw this image called Ready For Christmas by SheepSki Designs  I knew this was the perfect image for her card.

I have coloured this using Copics and a touch of White Prisma Colour Pencil.

I cut the shape using a GoKreate Frilly Frame Die.  The Square is actually a lilac snowflake patterned paper from The Snowman paper pack but its so light it doesn't show up very well in the photo.  I cut the image using a GoKreate large Circle die and layered this onto a Scalloped Citcle cut using a Spellbinders Grand Die.  The sentiment is hand stamped and is from Stampingallday.  I used a Robert Addams Die to cut the Snowflakes, hand tied a double bow, popped on the charm and finished by adding pearl gems, a clear snowflake and a Merry Christmas Peel Off

I really enjoyed making this for Chloe.  I like layers and this was fun!

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges
