Merry Christmas Lamp Post



We have one more challenge for you from Pattie's Creations before we go on holiday for a few weeks. It's an easy challenge: make a Christmas Card.  Pattie has so many wonderful Christmas images in her Etsy store, but I decided to use the Merry Christmas Lamp Post for my card.

The image is colored with Copic markers and I added snow using a Snow Writer with a touch of glitter.  A Spellbinders die was used to cut out the image and I added a double bow with a snowflake embellishment as a finishing touch.

You'll have two weeks to join the Pattie's Creations Design Challenge and then we'll all be back for a new challenge on January 11, 2013.

I'm entering this in the following challenges: Oozak (anything goes + red); Stampendous (CAS Christmas cards); CASology (sparkle).
