Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge ' silver and blue.'

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Hello everyone, and welcome to another Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge. This week Meighan is hosting and the challenge is to use silver and blue.

I came up with this card





I folded the card into a stepper card shape and used masks to create the snow lines with some blue pan pastel. I used another mask to create the skyline. I then stamped and embossed the trees and Santa's sleigh in silver. I added the snowflakes with a white gel pen and added the sentiment on a banner shape. It was fun to step outside my comfort zone and try a different card shape for a change.

Why not have a look at the inspiration from the Design Team and join us in the challenge this week?

I am entering this into the Crafting from the Heart Challenge which is for a fancy fold/anything goes, Bloggers Challenge which is to make a background, and Christmas Card Challenges which is anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by

Hugs
