Since we've no place to go..........

Not long now.. 10days to the big day
are you ready?
Well we have time for our last challenge of 2016 atAs You Like It Challenge

The sponsor of this challenge is
Crafty Ribbons

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Christmas Carol or Christmas Song (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

My favourite Christmas/ Seasonal song is 'Let it Snow'

Oh the weather outside is frightfulBut the fire is so delightfulAnd since we've no place to goLet It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

I LOVE snow when I first get up in the morning after it's snowed and there are no footprints or marks in the snow that first few minutes and then think
OH NO I have to go to work in that! DOH!

So for my card I have created a watercolour background on watercolour card
 with distress inks I saw a card like this somewhere a while ago and loved it but do you think I can find it again to show you and give the person the correct credit
so if its you please say and I can link back to you!

anyway I also then splattered with inky liquid pearls and then added beads of glossy accents. added a Sizzix snowflake die cut and the text let it snow is from a woodware Snow text stamp.

I made a few of these and what was really nice was that they were all different too :)

I am entering my card into a few challenges :)
