Open-Minded Crafting Fun - Unusual Christmas

Morning everyone, it is new challenge day over at Open-Minded Crafting Fun and the new theme is 'Unusual Christmas'.

Unfortunately I completely missed the mark on this one and the idea in my head didn't really end up so much unusual as fairly typical.  I even convinced myself I was using untraditional colours, Teal and Pink, but really it has ended up looking Red and Green.

Anyway, even though I missed the point, I still really like the end result.

I started by using  my Cameo sketch pens to draw the snowflake swirls and words.

I then put the paper through my printer and added this cute image by A&T Digital Designs called 'The Larkins'.

I have coloured the image with Copics and added a few elements with glitter gel pens.

Finishing off with some snowflake die cuts and goosebumps gems.

I hope you will come and join us and perhaps have better luck interpreting the theme than I die.

As always we have some fab sponsors.
