Sweet Pea Stamps - Artist of the Week September 2013 - Joanne Schempp

This week it is Artist of the Week over at Sweet Pea Stamps.  The chosen Artist of the Week for September 2013 is the ever so talented Joanne Schempp.  This is a week when the Design Team show creations they have made using the same artist.
I decided to make a Christmas card as the months are whizzing round and it will soon be Christmas again.  For my card I have used the Joanne Schempp image called "White Christmas".  She is available as a single rubber stamp and as part of a multi-image sheet (Sheet 12, Plate 187 - White Christmas comes on the multi-image sheet with Mariposa, Heritage and Two if by Sea).

I have coloured the digital stamp in with Promarkers/Flexmarkers, highlighted areas with a white gel pen and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and Pine Needles distress inks. 
The backing papers I have used are from Bearly Mine Designs Christmas Traditions and Simply Dots.  I have finished the card off with some organza ribbon, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and some die-cut snowflakes which I have rubbed over Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Let's Craft and Create - Colour me happy
Nutcrafters - Your favourite colour combo - I love to see many different colour combinations for Christmas cards but my favourite is still red and green
