Ice Christmas

This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge, it's a colour challenge this week and this Design Seeds Picture is the inspiration:

I have used a die from the Papertrey Ink Wonderful Words Holiday Die Collection, I have wanted these dies for ages and Papertrey Ink had a sale recently so I took the opportunity to order a few bits. They arrived within days, faster than a lot of items ordered within the UK and the postage was about the same when you take account of the current dollar conversion rate.

I cut the 'merry' three times and adhered them together, the 'Christmas' is a Clearly Besotted stamp and the snowflakes are from a Cheery Lynn Designs die, there are lots of different snowflakes all on the same die.

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

Less is More Week 201 - Colour Challenge
That Craft Place Challenge - Christmas
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge 114 - Modern Christmas Colours
Die Cut Diva's Challenge - Snow and Christmas/ Holidays
Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - Make Something with a Snowflake and a Sentiment

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
