I created an extra project this week to help out our fabulous Team Leader Choccy and used this gorgeous image Festive Friends by Sylvie Stamps. I adore animals and was drawn to this fun image of a girl playing dress up with her faithful companion.

I coloured the image with Promakers and Flexmarkers. I added some puffy snow but instead of puffing it up I sprinkles iridescent glitter on it. I also used some stickles glitter to add some more depth to the snowdrifts and some gently falling snowflakes in the background.

The card base is covered with a sparkly paper from Craftwork Cards and then I used a snowflake paper from DCWV. The paper is snippet from a 6” square pad and was just a little bit too small for the width so I cut it in 2 pieces as I was planning to put a contrast strip in there anyway. This is just a leftover snippet of striped paper from the same pack, edge with a Martha Stewart punch and some sheer blue and silver ribbon over the top. To finish I added a tag from Dovecraft embellished with some peel offs and Bakers Twine
