Let It Snow! - Christmas Song or Carol DCM Challenge

Happy Friday!

It was a sunny but chilly start to the day here in Essex. I don't mind the cold so much if the sun is out. Sunshine is magic - makes me happy :)  We even had a few flakes of snow in the afternoon.

On to the latest challenge at the Daring Cardmakers! This week's challenge is to draw inspiration from a Christmas song or carol. The song I chose is an old one by Frank Sinatra - Let it Snow. Thing is, I can't get it out of my head! It happens when I walk into a shop sometimes and I hear something playing in the background.

For my inspirational card I've used the Trimcraft Dear Santa range by Helz Cuppleditch for the background paper, doily and stamp set. I've coloured the stamped image with First Edition markers and added glitter glue to the snowflakes and ground on the image.

You can see the fabulous cards the rest of the Design Team have come up to inspire you further here!

Enjoy your weekend,
