gone postal

I am determined to keep up a promise I made to myself a couple of months ago and make at least one Christmas card a week until the holiday period starts. This week I made two as I have a couple of days off work yayyy.

I followed the sketchy over at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenges. Now, I have never been a fussy or fancy type of card maker; but this sketch looked just right to show off this great traditional British image from Delicious Doodles. There's even an American version. I added just a little extra colour with my promarkers to the sketch drawing and just a tiny touch here and there of glamour dust to bring out the sparkling of the snow.

I have no idea of the source of the dotty blue paper as was recieved in a RAK . The white swiss dots embossed card has had a few dots highlighted with glossy accents, the white angel hair paper band has been wound with a few fibres. Each piece backed with a blue/grey cardstock from stash. The prima flowers chosen to match have been topped with punched snow flakes.
The sentiment has been stuck to a mini tag and attached with a couple of links of chain before sticking down with dimensional glue.

I am entering this into the challenge
