MMSC28 A Christmas Card

This darling stamped image was sent to me by Michelle Rodgers of StampersDream.com recently, and since I have a good friend who happens to be a firefighter, I knew this would make a great Christmas card for him. I finally found time to make my card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #28 found here which has a twist this week to make a Christmas card. I colored the image with Tombows and added some stickles to the snow. I used scraps of red and green cardstock for the panels, and embossed the red with the SU! petals folder. I took some white cardstock, smeared it with versamark and embossed it with silver ep and punched out the snowflakes using a MS snowflake punch, along with a smaller unknown punch. The larger snowflake on the top has a snowflake brad in the center and they all have a Geo sparkler in the centers. The snowflake on the bottom also has a Geo sparkler in the center and some silver metallic ribbon which was made into a bow using the bow-easy.
Thanks for checking in and have a great weekend!
