Christmas Card Challenges #1 - A One Layer Christmas Card

Happy Sunday morning everyone!
It is my first challenge as an official member of Christmas Card Challenges and it is a real challenge for me as we want to see a One Layer Christmas Card! Now I'm always adding, adding, adding to my card so this one stretched me.

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Monochromatic
Drnken Stampers - Monochromatic
One Stop Crafts - Let It Snow
Sweet Stampin - Snow
Bah Humbug - Cute Christmas Critter
Frosted Designs - Music
Raise The Bar - Christmas
Scrap Stamp and Doodle - Holiday

Card Recipe:
Image - Pink Gem Designs
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug
Snowflakes - The Paper Studio
Sentiment - The Paper Studio

I kept true to the one layer and simply drew a message box with my trusty silver Primsacolor inside.

I used a precolored image on this one and I really like how easy it makes cardmaking, anyone can find time for this style.
I hope you enjoyed it and will come along and share your Christmas creation with us at
Christmas Card Challenges this week.
