I don't do much colouring but am trying to get to grips with my Spectrum Noir markers, so I used a digi stamp from Crafty Sentiments. It was sent to me last year when I took part in a blog hop at Craft Your Passion, it is a simple design but looks really effective. I also decided to go with a pastel palette for a change. Here are the three cards I came up with
By using different papers from my stash I was able to create three designs.
I went with lovely girlie pink for Chloe-Ann our granddaughter. I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Damien and Aaron got green and blue respectively. I added two tiny 'jingle bells' to each card on top of a snowflake glittered the appropriate colour using stickles glue and then added snowflakes which had been coated with iridescent stickles. I also added a thin layer of glossy accents too the candy canes to give then a shiny finish.
Finally I printed matching inserts for each card and added a die cut greeting panel with their names on.I am entering the boys cards into the following challenges.
