Buttons and Bows

 Hi everyone, me again and this time with another Christmas card. Oh I'm going to be so happy come Christmas and I've got loads of cards already made!
This one is for two challenges, the first being Bah! Humbug! where they are asking for 'buttons and bows' well I've only used one of each so I hope that counts.
The second challenge is Jingle Belles where the theme is 'Baby, it's cold outside' and they want to see scarves, mittens etc. I can see 3 pairs of mittens and 2 scarves on this, so that should be OK.

Card Details:
* Image - Karen's Doodles 'First Snowfall'
* Sentiment - Woodware 'Circular Greetings'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - DCWV 'Rose Tinted Christmas'
* Punch - EK Success 'Photo Corners'
* Everything else from my stash

I'm about half way through another card for some more Christmas challenges, just waiting for the glitter to dry, so I may be back tomorrow (if it all goes well)

You didn't waste any time getting this one done - did you. It's perfect for the challenge. Beautiful design and great colours. You posted this while I was shopping for some seam binding. Hopefully you'll be seeing it on my cards soon.

Oh Chrissie - your card is stunning, the colours are amazing. The image is just so much fun. I so love how you have used a darker grey to outline the main image, I have only ever used Ice Grey 1 to outline the image but I think I will certainly have a go with a darker outline. Love how you have used the button.
