Let It Snow

Welcome March, pinch and a punch it's the first of the month (pinch of glitter and a shape punch that is, no violence here!) This morning at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown we have a sketch challenge for you, and I have to say it's rather different!

Wow, that's going to get you reaching for your circular stamps, punches and dies, I started with searching for circular stamp images, after deciding to use one of my all time fave colour combos for Christmas -Kraft, red and white.
 I have reduced the small circles to circular embellishments- a fabric brad, some large red rhinestones and some large pearls.  The Santa image is from a set I bought in The Netherlands last year and the other two are magazine freebies, they have all been heat embossed.

The vellum is polka dotted with white glittery bits, following the idea of Let It Snow,  There's a brand new Christmas Challenge Blog starting this week called Completely Christmas, where anything goes, so I've popped my card into the challenge there, hope you do too, to give them lots of support.
Remember to have a look over at the blog at the other cards from the DT at 52 CCT if you haven't already- they're fabulous! Happy Crafting!
