I made my card this week with a combo pack called In the Meadow We Can Build a Snowman from Reece’s Scrap Pieces which has the digi image, a coloured image and 5 different patterned papers in a blue and purple colour palette.

I selected the snowman paper and the marble blue one and then coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers to match. One of the papers has the repeating phrase on it so I isolated one to print out for the sentiment. I used a punch on the blue paper and matted the image on some scrap navy blue card and mounted with 3d foam. The sentiment has been cut with a Quickcutz die, mounted onto the dark blue and raised on foam pads. I used some stickles glitter glue on the snowflakes and snowdrifts and around the sentiment panel.

This is the last challenge for the year and we will be back again with challenge #94 on January 1st 2012 however, if you are up for it there will be a mini challenge on Christmas Day so you can pop on over and see us if you fancy a challenge after stuffing yourself full of lovely Christmas goodies.

I would never have thought of putting blue and purple together but they actually both work quite well. Great card. I hope you and your family have a merry christmas and a very happy new year Julie x
