OSAAT Challenge 46

This week we have an Anything Goes theme BUT you must use a digi! The sponsor is Kenny K
The winner will receive 3 digis as 1st prize. Runner up will receive 2 digis & 3rd will receive 1 digi, all of your choice. Our Christmas club also starts this week, so you can start building your Christmas cards for next year in plenty of time.

I have made a Christmas card this week & used a Floppy Latte image called Snowglobe & this can be purchased here.
I used My Craft Studio & enlarged the image into a card size shape. Drew around the image to create a back & joined the 2 together at the top to make a stand alone card.
I paper pieced the scene & added Glamour Dust onto the roofs & ends of the trees, although it is difficult to see from the photo. I have then added an acetate overlay & used Liquid Pearls to create the snow in a snow globe. It looks quite effective, although I say it myself. Its always difficult to photograph acetate, so photo does not show the sparkle unfortunately.
Entered into the following challenges
A Spoonful Of Sugar Blue & Green
My Time To Craft Spots & Dots
Creative Cottage Shaped Cards
Frosted Designs Use Vellum, Transparencies or Acrylic
