Post-holiday catch up: 6 challenges in 1!


Having been away for a few days I haven't made any cards since last weekend, so today I have sat down to have a catch up. Looking at the current challenges I thought I could make one card that could fit 6 challenges, so here we go!

First: Papertake Weekly challenge is COOL YULE - to make a Christmas card.
Second: Arty Girlz #45 is BLUE - to make a card where blue is the predominant colour.
Third: Rainbow Lady's Challenge #24 is SWIRLS AND FLOURISHES, so I have used a swirly background paper.
Fourth: I always feel inspired if I've got a sketch to follow, so this card is my interpretation of Friday Sketchers #13.

Fifth: Penny Black Saturday Challenge #8 is NO PINK! ... well I promise Snowy's nose and cheeks are red (honest!).
Last but not least: Michelle's Blogoversary Challenge is to make a MONOTONE COLOUR card - all one colour group plus white .. as you can see I have gone for blue (except Snowy hasn't yet got a blue nose LOL!).
I used: main image is PB "Snowy", coloured with Twinkling H2O's and Marvey markers and decorated with Stckles glitter glue. Sentiment is by "Make Your Mark" (a great one-off stamp shop I came across whilst away in York) inked with blue pigment ink and embossed with silver pearl powder. Flower is Prima decorated with stickles and pinned with a Making Memories sparkly silver brad. Snowflake brads and background papers are from my stash.

6 in 1 ... is this a record ??
