A Paper a la Mode Christmas Challenge!

It's Saturday and time for a new Paper a la Mode challenge at The Outlawz.  It was my turn to post the challenge which means I got to choose the theme too.  As I needed to start on my Christmas cards, I decided to use Christmas/Winter Holiday as the challenge theme.  I have already made a few cards using the free images I was given for participating in the progressive challenge at CDAC for them.  This card, however, features one of the 4 images I won from Delicious Doodles in a challenge a couple of weeks ago.  I really love some of the digi stamps she sells.  This one is a snowy scene and in the foreground is a lovely old postbox as seen in Great Britain.  Because I'm of English descent I thought it was fitting.  It's very difficult to see in the photos but I used iridescent Stickles to give the snow that glistening quality it has when the the sunlight or moonlight shines down on it.

The image is, of course, colored with Copics.  The dp is DCWV's Holiday stack from last year or year before.  I can't really remember.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The sentiment stamp is by Stampibilities.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:  TBD

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Until next time...

Happy crafting!
