LETS CRAFT & CREATE CHALLENGE #120 Christmas/New Year

Hello Dear Friends,
We have a new challenge starting today over at
LET'S CRAFT AND CREATE
The theme for this challenge is...
Christmas/New Year
There is a lovely prize to be won too, so come join in the fun!

Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
Here is what I used to make my card...
Digital stamp by Mo's Digital Pencil
Digi image colored with Spectrum Noir Markers,
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils and a white Glaze Gelly Roll Pen.
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Mirabelle'
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Thinlits Dies 'Woodlands'
Zots Glue Dots and Beacon Gem-Tac Glue
Red/white ribbon and pearls are from my dear friend Mary.
Unbranded Snowflake die
White/red/green cardstock paper, beads, lace tape and flowers 
from my stash.

Using white paper, I made the card. I glued the green patterned paper in 
the center, then added the striped patterned paper in the center of that. I 
added a strip of red patterned paper on the bottom center. After cutting 
the red and the green patterned paper to frame behind the image, I glued 
the red paper to the back of the image, then glued the snowflake in place 
onto the green paper. Then glued all of them together and added the 
image at a slant onto the side of the card. I then glued the ribbon across 
the bottom of the card, tucking the ends under the green paper. Then 
added the lace tape over the red paper and slightly over the ribbon, then 
tucked in the ends under the green paper. Next I added small pieces of 
a glue dot behind the tree and added it to the side of the card, with the 
trunk behind the ribbon. Then glued the three pearls onto the tree. I 
applied glue to every other bead and added them to the card, over the 
lace and ribbon. After adding a glue dot to the back of each flower I 
placed them below the image and slightly over the beads.

And that's my DT card.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.

Happy Crafting,
Sherry x
