Friday Sketchers Ch 99, Papertake & Winter Wonderland Relaunch

Hello everyone, today I have another christmas card to show you and I have used a gorgeous Hanglar image that was sent to me by a blogging friend (thanks hun!). I am entering it into the following challenges; Friday Sketchers Challenge 99, this week's Papertake has a theme of something different and finally the Winter Wonderland relaunch has a theme of anything christmas.

I took my inspiration for my card from a card that has been made by the ever so talented Claudia, check it out HERE. It is her DT card for Friday Sketchers and I just loved the design, so I had to use it straight away (you know when you just get one of those moments!!!). Anyway, it is a fold I have never used before so it also fits in well with this week's papertake challenge. I have used a gorgeous Hanglar image and she is coloured with copics. The lush DP is from fancy pants and the sentiment is from Whiff of Joy. The blue flower originally started off white and I coloured it with a copic to match my card. The rest of the embellishments are from my stash.

Sorry, I couldn't get a very good picture showing the way the card opened as it was a bit windy and it kept blowing over (I was nearly tearing my hair out in the end), but basically the front is only half a panel. The area to write a greeting has been stamped around the edge with two different snowflake stamps from Magnolia and I have added stickles to them for a bit of bling.
