It's Wednesday so that means another super challenge at The Pixie Cottage

Card Recipe:
Image - Hannah with Candle
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - A Homemade Christmas by DCWV
Tree Die Cut - Accucut
Embossing Folder - Snowflakes by Basic Grey for Sizzix
Metallic Cardstock - American Crafts
Sentiment - Hobby Lobby
Pearls - The Paper Studio
Ribbon - Michaels
Puffy Paint - Tulip

This is this weeks great sketch!

I thought the sketch translated very well to an easel style card (one of my team mates did too so it must be try! LOL).
As it is Christmas card season that means time to get out the Puffy Paint, one of my favorite ways to add dimension for snow, fur etc.
I hope you enjoyed it and will be coming over to play with us at The Pixie Cottage this week.
