Whiff of Joy..A Boys Christmas Card


First of all....a HUGE thank you to Donna who has transformed by blog. Thank you , thank you thank you!
My card today is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge which was to make a Christmas card for a boy but with no blue. I chose 'Charlie and his Snowman' and coloured him with prismacolour pencils and a touch of sansador to blend. I have used stickles for his hat and the ice around the snowman. The snowflakes are stamped with white ink and then covered with stickles.
The papers are all Basic Grey 'Wassail'. The edges have been inked and distressed.
The sentiment stamp is from Magnolia. The brads and buttons are from my stash.
I realised as I was edging Charlie in BLUE that I was not allowed to use blue! Oooopppps! I'm sure this minor mistake will be forgiven.
Thank you for all your kind Birthday wishes. I am still going to be eating cake today and for many days after, so please pop round for a cuppa and help me out!
