For A Child - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 17th of March, 2017

For the next two weeks at Winter Wonderland, we are hosted by ME!
I have chosen the theme of "For A Child"
So we want to see anything that a child will love for Christmas.

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only.
We are sponsored this week by "Sasayaki Glitter" who are offering 1 digi stamp to the winner.


Sasayaki Glitter are actually based here in Melbourne, Australia! You can find them on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com.au/shop/SasayakiGlitter and they have a challenge blog and Facebook group.
They have many different images for you to colour and add to your projects: cute elephants, Australian animals, Easter chicks and kitties just to name a few!
We had two images to play with for this challenge:
Winter Kiddles - a cute koala sitting in the snow
or the one I chose
Christmas Bunny Decorating - a cute bear with some Christmas lights

So here is my card:

I digitally stamped Christmas Bunny Decorating on to X-Press It card and then had my Silhouette Cameo fussy cut around the image.

I have used the following Copics pens to colour the bunny:
  • bunny's fur - E41, E43, E44, E47, RV63 (ears)
  • hat and boots - R32, R35, R37
  • christmas lights from left to right - BG53 & BG57, RV02 & RV66, B60 & B69, V01 & V28, YR02 & YR09, YG13 & YG17
  • sparkle on hat and lights - Wink of Stella
  • background - B000, B02
I have then followed the sketch from this month's Christmas Card Throwdown:


I have adhered Christmas Bunny Decorating on to a white card from Envelope Solutions and then attached 3 different Washi tape as the stripes of colour from Manzawa. The sentiment "merry christmas" is from Toboggan Together by Lawn Fawn and is stamped in Cottage Ivy Memento ink.

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for March - anything goes as long as it's Christmas
Weekly Christmas Card Challenge #8 - anything goes as long as it's Christmas*

*this challenge has an optional challenge that I may make another card and enter into these challenges again.
