This is my entry for the lotv Thursday challenge number 66 a Christmas card in untraditional colours - and also for the pink elephant challenge - a card with aqua - I chose a card with a serrated edge. The snowman, the backing paper and the shape are from The Clipart Fairy. I put them all in photoshop and resized them, then made an extra snowman, cut it out and stuck it on the original snowman using foam pads. I added as much glitter as I possibly could (I discovered that if you add too much the paper buckles !!!) then stuck on 4 greeny/blue shiny gems I pinched from my daughters stash.

I am really pleased with the card, it turned out just as I had hoped it would and it only took me about an hour and a half to finish so I'm getting faster - and another hour cleaning up the kitchen !!
