Pixie Cottage Showcase - Anything But A Card

Happy Saturday!
It's time for another showcase of cards at The Pixie Cottage and this time the team was challenged to make "Anything But Card". There is some fabulous work over there and I urge you to drop over and take a look :)
While you are there check out the "Once Upon a Wednesday" challenge that is running at the moment and it's "Get Stitchy" theme.
Making something other than a card is always fun for me as I was into scrapbooking and altering stuff way before I started making cards and it's nice to swap out the techniques.

I found a few other challenges to go with this one too.

The Pink Elephant had the theme of "Color Me Wonderful" and wanted your favorite method of coloring
Stamp With Fun had a Christmas theme
Rosie and Dees wanted Red and Green and a Bit of Bling!
Incy Wincy also wanted Red and Green
Sophisticat wanted Snowflakes and Sparkle
Stamp With Sarah Kay had a Christmas theme
Creative Card Crew had a Christmas theme
Gingersnaps had a Winter Wonderland theme and so did Cuttlebug Spot
3 Clovers wanted Gifts (no cards)
My Time To Craft had a theme of "Winter Pals"
Crafty Calendar had a theme of Winter Sparkle
Lots to Do had a Snow theme

I used a wooden plaque for this Christmas Decoration and the image fitted perfectly with it!
I colored this fantastic image by Artish with Copic's and added Puffy Paint for the snow on the tree and the snowballs. This stamp is on it's way to Michelle right now so be sure to check back to order it.
I embossed the snowflake circle onto American Crafts wonderful foil cardstock, the Cuttlebug works great on this.
I then matted the circles on Pinking Circle Nesties.
The rhinestones are Michaels $1 spot and the letters are Spare Parts from Hobby Lobby.

Here is a close up of the super cute group of Snow Buddies!
Be sure to check out all the wonderful work of the rest of the team at The Pixie Cottage!
