Eggbert Winter

Have you met this cutie yet? This little guy is called Eggbert Winter. He is this week's freebie at Bugaboo Stamps. Not only do you get this cute little guy, but you also get a sentiment and background image. So 3 digis for free this week!! How cool is that!!

I colored Eggbert blue and white to go along with the challenge at Sew Many Challenges. I was formerly part of the DT over there so it was fun to join in as a participant for the first time in a long time. The color blue is also for the blue Christmas challenge at Wild Orchid. The sketch that I used is from The Sweet Stop. To me this image of Eggbert looks like he is about ready to have a great big snowball fight. So I thought it was perfect for the winter sports challenge at Winter Wonderland. The challenge at If The Shoe Fits Scrap It is to create handmade embellishments. My embellishments are made by punching a large white snowflake and small blue snowflake. I added glitter and a light blue gemstone to the snowflakes. The challenges at A Spoonfull of Sugar, Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club and Sweet Stampin are to add snowflakes. I added the snowflakes in the snowflake embellishments, the border below the image and the embossing. The challenge at Critter Sketch is texture. The texture on my card is in the embossing, glitter and ribbon.

That's a gorgeous card - really pretty colours and the dry embossing is great.

Thanks for entering the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers, however, you've added it to the linky for our more recent 'card and gift' challenge rather than the earlier dry embossing one. (The dry embossing challenge is still open - you'll just need to scroll down the page a bit!) I know it's an easy mistake to make since we normally have two categories open at any time.
