Card for Four ChallengesThis card

I have made this card for my stash.  I have used some DCWV backing paper I bought last year and didn't finish using this Christmas so it's living on the box on the dining room table ie to be used so it's found a new home on this card!!!

The main image is from a Papermania stamp and you could buy the ladies shopping stamps to go with it.  I just bought the backing as I thought it would be a nice back-drop stamp and I have stamped with Memento and then coloured in with Promarkers.  Next came the messy bit of scribbling on some Quickie glue pen, letting it dry a tad and then dabbing with a cheap cotton wool pads to get the fluffy bits onto the image.  I then dabbed with a Sno Writer in various places over the roofs, grass and pathway and left to dry a tad before heating from the back.  It worked perfectly and feels very textural.  I then inked the edge of the image with Tim Holtz's Denim, Peeled paint and Brushed Courhuroy Distress Ink pads.  I have stamped a little girl from a Personal Impressions set that I had bought and hadn't used and coloured her in with Promarkers.  The card is finished off with some fibres and ticket sentiment from Allissa's Paper Town.

This card fits the following challenges:

Susie and Vicki's Xmas Club - Snow

Fussy and Fancy Friday - Winter

Sophisticats Challenge Blog - Doth the North Wind Blow
