Good morning! I have another Christmas card to share with you and this time it is for this week's challenge at 2 Sisters.  We would like to see snowflakes on your cards/projects.  We are being sponsored by Kenny K Downloads! And one lucky crafter will win 4 digital images from thier shop! How cool is that!! Click on the blinkie to go check out all the amazing images they have.

I used the image Mistletoe on my card. I colored her using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I added a little bit of white flocking to add "fur" to her outfit. I also added a little gold stickles to the buckle on her belt and on her shoes.

The sketch I used is from Seems A Little Sketchy.  I used the colors black, white, red and gold.  I embossed the piece of white card stock using a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder ~ DOTS.  Punched a white snowflake using a punch from Martha Stewart Crafts.  I also punched a red snowflake using a snowflake corner punch also from Martha Stewart Crafts. I added crystal stickles to the white around the base of the card, around the image and to the white snowflake.  I added red stickles to the small snowflake.  I added a gold pearl to the middle of the snowflakes and 3 gold pearls to the upper corner.  I added gold ribbon across the middle of the card and made a bow out of the ribbon to add to the side of the image.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
