Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas Challenge - March

Hello Blogging Friends!

I hope you had a great week and are ready for an even better weekend!  I am back today with another challenge from Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas Challenge !

So what is the Progressive Christmas Challenge you ask?

If you want to join in, just send Laurian an email at christmasprogressive@mail.com  with your email address.  Then she will send you the 2 free images and then the fun begins.  All you have to do is make a card/s with one or both of the images to get the next month’s free images. She also asks that all participants link their posts to the sponsor as well as to Lady Anne’s.

This will be a monthly challenge so you will have plenty of time to complete your projects. If you miss a month or join in at a later date, you will be able to buy in for only £1, using the PayPal button in the side bar of the challenge blog. Only those who participate in the challenge will get the next month’s free digis.

Lady Anne has a few different challenges running and you have a month to enter!  So get some free images, get started on your Christmas cards and come share them with us!

Our sponsor this month is Anji's Antics

Ok so now to the card, the reason you are here right? The image is a fluffy little snowman and was generously provided by Anji's Antics.  I printed the image on cryogen paper and colored it with my copics.  I cut out the image with Spellbinders Circle die cut and framed it with some burlap.  The background papers are by My Minds Eye and the sentiment on the outside is by Magnolia.  I added some ribbon from The Pink Petal a snowflake some pearls and twine.

I used chipped sapphire distress ink and walnut stain around the image.   I also added liquid applique to the hat and gloves with some extra glitter.  This little snowman has gotten a bit dirty, but I think he will be ok.  It goes along with the distressed look of the card.

Copics used:
B91, B93, B95, B97, C3, C7, C9, E71, E74, E77, YR61, YR68

The inside sentiment is by Stampabilites.
