Snowman Bells

It's time for Bugaboo’s Fifth Annual Christmas in July week long event. there is a fun challenge each day with great prizes for each challenge - if you manage to complete all of the challenges you can win a Guest Designer Term along with lots of fabulous images.

I don't expect I will manage all of the challenges but hopefully will complete a few, this is my card for the first challenge which is Jingle All The Way.


I have used the fun image Snowman Bells and coloured him with a combination of Sprectrum Noir and ProMarker pens.  I decided to go for non traditional Christmas colours and used papers from the Simple Stories Cozy Christmas colection


I added glitter to the snow and 3D Crystal Lacquer to the bells and his buttons.  The border is a Fiskars punch and the sentiment was also from the Simple Stories paper pack.  I added some pearls from my stash to embellish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Catch The Bug Christmas in July - Jingle All The Way
Crafty Calendar July Challlenge - Christmas in July
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Christmas in July
Kitty Bee Designs Challenge 51 - Christmas in July
