Traditional Christmas Colour Challenge

Time for another Christmas card challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas challenges and this week it is an traditional coloured themed challenge.  I am using a image from one of our great sponsors Odd Ball Art.  My snowball throwing lady is called Kawaii Big Eye Girl in Winter Snowball Fight.

I had fun making my card.  I cut my card shape with a step die from Cheery Lynn  and added my pattern paper.  The image was coloured with Copics and a Wink of Stella. I added some mittens, snowflakes garland, baker's twine and snowball ribbon to complete the card.  

Hope you enjoyed mt card and will join us at Holly Jolly this week.  
Thank you for stopping by.
