Winter Wonderland

I decided that I would like to join in with the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge this week and the theme is  - A Christmas Card for the Boys - a nice easy one then!

I had a good hunt though all of my Lili of the Valley stash and decided to use this fab die cut topper called Boy Sledging and teamed it up with the fab new Christmas papers from Bearly Mine Designs - Christmas Traditions.

I followed the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday and as it is a card for a boy I have kept things quite simple.  I layered the image onto red card stock and then white and all of the papers have been layered onto the white card stock.

I used my Martha Stewart Halloween Border punch - it's supposed to be goo but I think it looks quite like melting snow - across the centre and just added some buttons and stickles (which of course don't show up in the photographs) to embellish.  The sentiment is from the LOTV Simply Sophisticated set, stamped with fired brick distress ink.

I have decorated the inside of my card following the same layout as the front.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - A Christmas Card for the Boys
Sketch Saturday week 228 - Donna's Sketch
Here Come The Boys Challenge 37 - Monochrome
