First Christmas Card of 2011

Yipeeee I've make a start, I have completed my first christmas card for this year.
We have a new challenge over at CRAFT challenge for you which I thought would be perfect for a Christmas card. The new challenge (116) is:

Resist technique

If you are wondering what this is that Eiglas has done a fabulous tutorial on the challenge blog which can be found here
The sponsors this week is Sew Many digital stamps

This challenge got the DT stuggling a bit more than normal for our DT cards, but this is what I came up with using one of my favourite Christmas stamps from LOTV.

I made the star backing paper using the resist technique

Recipe: The stamp is from LOTV which I've coloured in with Promarkers and added some Stickles glitter. The sentiment stamp is from Little Claire designs. The snowflakes are punched. The white and silver backing paper is from Craftwork cards, the ribbon is from SU, the gems from Meiflower crafts and the flowers from my stash.
