That C Word!!!

 Morning and this is my 2nd GDT for Krafty Chicks and this week the challenge is Christmas so I have made my first sort of CAS Christmas card of the year lol.

The image is "On a Snowball" from Mos Digital Pencil coloured with promarkers and added soft snow.

Die-cut frame from Spellbinders and the P.paper feom stash.Sentiment was computer generated in Dafont and added glamour dust for sparkle.

the two strips at the bottom was stencilled/inky offcuts from my bit box I was clearing out -no idea why I keep that size but fitted perfectly lol there was an awful lot of smaller pieces why??? Straight in the bin!

A sweet card Carol and well done on using your little bits. I save smaller than that thinking they may come in useful for sentiments, but must have a sort out! x
