Baubles - Winter Wonderland Card Challenge for 8th of April 2016

The challenge this week at Winter Wonderland chosen by Carol is 

This means that you must include a bauble somewhere on your card, or make the card the shape of a bauble.

The sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments.
They are offering the winner a choice of three digis from their online store.
To be in with a chance of winning a prize, please remember that it is Christmas projects only.

Here is my card:

The image I used this week is Joy of Christmas, a cute snowman next to a Christmas tree with a bird on one of his arms. I added some baubles to the tree and one on his arm.
I printed the image on X-Press It paper and coloured with the following Copic pens:
  • snowman - C0, C1, C2
  • scarf - YG13, G05, G17
  • hat - C3, C5, C7, C10, black Wink of Stella, clear Wink of Stella
  • carrot nose - YR09
  • mouth - RV17
  • arms - E39
  • bird - R27, R37, E74, YR09
  • Christmas tree - E39, YG06, YG09, G05, G17, G29
  • star on Christmas tree - Y28, gold Wink of Stella
  • baubles - purple Wink of Stella, silver Wink of Stella
  • snow - BV0000, C0, C1, clear Wink of Stella
  • clouds - B60, E93, BG0000
  • sky - YR14, Y17, Y15, Y00, BG000, B00
The idea for the clouds and sky came from Alyce's Sunset Scene from Kit and Clowder's latest class - Elements of Nature.

I have stamped the sentiment "May Your Days Be Merry & Bright" from the clear stamp set "Poinsettia" from Power Poppy in Bamboo Leaves Memento ink on to a white card from Envelope Solutions.
I cut and adhered a piece of green paper from Holly Bright from KaiserCraft. Then I adhered my coloured Joy of Christmas Snowman on top using pop dots.

I have sort of used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches from this week.
Also I have used both green and gold which is the ABC Christmas Challenge for this week.
My card also fits in with the sketch challenge #67 on Always Playing with Paper.
