Whoopsi Daisy Sparkle and Shine Challenge

This is the last Whoopsi Daisy Challenge for this year! Wow were does the time go? This week we want to see lots of Sparkle and Shine.

This card was a request from my daughter for her nephew, my grandson. She chose the image from one of Linnie's sheets and left the rest of the design to me.

I am still on my mision of using up the freebie backing papers in my stash and this one with the white random spots looking like snow complimented the image. As they were chopping down a tree it seemed appropriate to have a forest in the backgound! These were stamped using the masking technique and then embossed with glittery embossing powder.

The image was coloured with promarkers, the snow with watery china blue distress ink and dabbed with icicles stickles. Some tiny coloured gems were used on the tree image and clear star gems in the sky. 

I have had these bells in my crafty stash forever and I have sewn them to crafters rope and wrapped it around the bottom. A sentiment finishes the card. Yeah! another card to cross off the list!.

I am entering this card into the following challenges: Tic Tack Toe, Snow Tree Bauble Christmas with lots of embellishments
