For Someone Special/Happy New Year - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 16th of December

For the next three weeks at Winter Wonderland we are hosted by Eileen. She has chosen the theme: For Someone Special,
or Happy New Year.

As this challenge runs through into January you can use any image that you want, that is it does not have to be a Christmas image or project. This will actually continue until the end of March and then we will go back to Christmas projects only. It is a good way to have a break from all the Christmas projects and increase your non-Christmas card stash!

For this challenge, we are sponsored by:

Sami at A Day For Daisies, who is giving a voucher for $12 to spend in their store

and Crafter's Companion, who are giving a 10 pound voucher to spend in their store.

So on to my card! Well actually it is a tag.....I have been so busy making chocolate fudge and chocolate truffles to give away for Christmas to teachers and friends, that this is a quick one!

I used an image from A Day for Daisies called Penguin Snowman.
I have printed him out on X-Press It Blending Card, then cut it into a tag shape using my Silhouette Cameo.
I have coloured the image using the following Copics pens:
  • snow - BV000, C0
  • scarf - G02, G05, G17
  • hat - R32, R35, R37
  • penguin feet and snowman nose - YR04
  • snowman buttons and eyes - black Wink of Stella
  • background (from the top) - B99, B69, V17, V04, RV55, RV02, Y02, YG06, YG67

I added Frosted Lace stickles to the snowflakes in the image, then I have stamped the sentiment "Let It Snow" from Let it Snow from The Greeting Farm in glue then sprinkled Diamond Glitter (hope that you can see the sparkle), then I attached a ribbon that I coloured with Copics pen B69.

The idea for the background is from the Kit and Clowder Northern Lights Workshop which was part of Create and Learn, but is available as part of a mini Technique Bundle. Alyce always has some great ideas! :)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Tag You're It #62 - I may enter some other tags into this challenge!
Merry Monday #226 - Winter Fun - the snowman and penguins are having fun!
