Weekly Christmas Card

Hello & welcome back.
Today I have my weekly Christmas card to share with you.

I looked at a bunch of changes & then came 
up with a game plan to incorporate what I found.

 I started with the need to make a Christmas card,
I found a new challenge site that is Christmas - 
Thier challenge was to use a picture for inspiration. ( I will load it below).
That is where I got the orange, green and sparkle.

Here is my little puppy.
Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog had the challenge to use cute Christmas critters,
so I added a string of lights to the puppy & a toque.

Daring Cardmakers challenge this week was to make a card 
with animal antics, hence the puppy getting away with
the Christmas lights.

Once I had the lights added, it allowed me 
to also enter into my usual challenge Little Red Wagon.
The weekly challenge is "Shine"  - light-bulbs, bright colours & sparkle -
anything that Shines.

I uses clear embossing powder & orange flocking to give
 the star of the show a little pizzazz.

I also used the footprint stamp in light grey, 
embossed in white snow with the rest of the card, 
and them added a shimmer glitter embossed shadow to the trail.

The houses needed to have some snow so I added Versamark ink
 with a Versamarker and snow embossing powder. 
I also added Christmas lights to the trees, 
they looked to busy on the houses.
I also added snow embossing powder with the 
Versamark to the hill tops as well.  
I didn't think my snow pen had enough in it 
to do the entire card unfortunately.

 The title I mounted on orange to tie the colours together around the card.
The sky is inked with a mask I made 
using my Lawn Fawn cloud borders and think card stock.
I also added glitter snowflakes in the sky to bring a touch of sparkle.

Here is my entire card again.

the stamp & die sets I used are Lawn Fawn
