Snowflakes!

I have been asked to make a few personalised cards for children - their ages range from 3 years to 4 months. This is the second one of the order.

Here's the one for the baby! I loved this image from Mo Manning called Kai in the Snow as soon as I saw it - I think the expression on the baby's face is simply wonderful! (I have always loved snow so maybe that's what attracted me to the image)

I coloured Kai with promarkers and added some stickles for the snow.

The embosssed frame is from Craftwork Cards and I used some Pearlescent Blue ink round the edges of the scallops before mounting it onto some blue card. I dusted over some of the snowflakes with blue glitter, the two single snowflakes were done using a Martha Stewart punch and the greeting was printed on the PC.

There's lots of challanges relating to Winter this week -
Sunday Stampers - Winter
Bee Crafty - Christmas (and a Digi image)
Paper Sundaes - Let It Snow
One Stitch at a Time - Winter Wonderland
Stamping Vacation - Paper with Snowflakes
Raise the Bar - Curves or Scallops
