Buckwells Crafty Challenge - December 2014 - Use the colour red

 Another month has arrived, the last of 2014, and it is time for the start of another challenge over at Buckwells Crafty Challenge and the topic for this month is "use the colour red".
This month we are delighted to see in a new sponsor for the challenge, Lia Stampz.
For my card I have use the Lia Stampz image called "Christmas Snowmen" and I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and added some white Polar Ice Flowersoft to look like snow.

The backing papers and sentiment are from a CD from Creative Crafting World.  The backing papers are from "Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD-Rom" and the sentiment is from the "Perfect Christmas Companions CD-Rom".  I have put some mirri card through a script embossing folder.

I have finished the card off with a sentiment off the CD which I have added Stickles glitter glue to the edge, some die-cut snowflakes, 25mm Ruby Red satin ribbon and 10mm red stain ribbon (both ribbons area available from Buckwell Craft Supplies).
To start the festivities off early there is a 10% off sale over at Buckwell Craft Supplies from 1 December 2014 to 15 December 2014 inclusive.  To get the discount you have to enter the code:  XMAS14.

Hurry on over to Buckwell Craft Supplies to grab some bargains.
