Challenge 78 - Christmas Come Early

I really didn't want to think about this in September but it really is time to start thinking about it if I need to be ready and after last year when Christmas crept up on me (who knew it was at the end of December - Duh).

For this Challenge we have the fabulous Nicole from

The Winner will received a $10 Gift Certificate

We were given an image and sentiment to use and I got to use the fabulous 
Christopher Holding Logs.  I really enjoyed colouring this image in and for a change I used my Copic markers to colour my image.  I had an idea in mind when I saw the image and decided to make a stepper card and use my Tim Holtz Bigz dies of pine trees for the side steppers.  I've used glitter card throughout but the trees are a self adhesive glitter foam.  The snowflake is a die and the glitter card came from Home Bargains.  I didn't like the way the card mat edge looked so I used ribbon to mask the joins and edges.  For the edge of the white border at the bottom I drew round a Spellbinder die and then cut out with a knife.  The base card came from Craft Den Studio.  I'm really please with how this turned out and someone may get this as a Christmas card this year.

Hop over to the CWWCC and show us your Christmas projects.
