MAWTT - Snow Cute

The hostess this week, over at Moving Along with the Times, is Anne and she chose the theme Snow Cute.

I'm not sure about making cute cards because I have very few people who appreciate one. However, when it's a Christmas card, I think they're happy with cute. I've had a book of cute images for ages. I think I got it as a freebie in a magazine. Fortunately I found a few cute snowy images so this was the one I chose. I've made a few cards recently with owls on and this is another. I'm terrified of birds and could never touch one but this one looks really cute.

This time I used a small square card blank by Craft UK. The silver card is all from Papermill and the pale blue backing paper is from a pack by Docraft.I cut the image using a Spellbinder classic circle and then matted it on to a Sue Wilson Italian die - it's the first time I've used it but I've had it for a while. I only stuck it down in the centre so the beautiful edges are all slightly raised for some dimension. I added some Floracraft Diamond Dust to the top of the post box, the tree and to the little owl's head. It was a very quick and simple Christmas card - I might be encouraged to make some more.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Challenges4Everybody - Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenges - Things With Wings
The Glory of Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
2 Cute Ink Challenge - Use glitter
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - All about animals
