Fetch A Sketch Challenge 7 - Guest Designer

Good morning everyone on a very chilly Monday. Hope you all had a lovely weekend too and are rested and ready for the week ahead. I'm teaching a class this morning and hopefully by the time this pops up I should be a great deal more ready for it than I was when I drafted this post!
This is my second and last challenge as guest designer for Ruth and Jenny of Fetch A Sketch and the sponsor for this one is our lovely Nikky of Polka Doodles. There's a really great sketch this time perfect for celebration or Christmas so without further ado, here it is:

As you can see. I chose to make a Christmas card and used digital stamps, embellishments and papers from the Magical Winter CD set which has loads of elements for Winter themed cards and of course, Christmas!
I covered a kraft card blank with the blue dotty paper and then added a torn strip with a dotty ribbon and bow.
I printed out the jolly snowman and the Merry Christmas bunting and coloured these with Promarkers. I made the scarf look woolly by colouring all over with a pale blue marker then adding dotted stripes with 2 darker shades of blue and 2 greens. I hope you like the effect.
I cut these out and assembled the card as you see. Simples!

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see all the gorgeous samples and details of the challenge prize which is sure to be fabulous!

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
The Squirrel And The Fox - Anything Goes
Jingle Belles - Christmas including a digi
Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Paper Creations Ink - Buttons Or Bows

Thanks for looking and have a good week,
Fliss xx
