Dragon's Lair Designs Challenge - Christmas Time

Good Morning everyone hope you are all well today and starting to get into the Christmas Spirit and 
if you are you are going to love the new challenge that is starting over on the Dragon's Lair Designs blog as this month it is all about Christmas Time

For my inspiration this month I have used Jiggy in front of fire 

To make this card I started with an 8" x 8" blank card and used a corner punch on all the corners for a nice decorative effect I then found some nice paper from my stash to cover the card with, next I took some pretty holly paper and cut a strip from it measuring 10cm and backed it onto green card which I then added 2 strips of lace ribbon to, I then added some foam pads to the back for dimension.

After I had printed off my gorgeous image and coloured him with my Copic Alcohol Markers I punched the corners to match the card and matted him onto green card and again added foam pads to the back to raise the image up for extra dimension.  To add some sparkle I added some glitter glue around the edge of the image and around the edge of the card and some green glitter glue along the strip.

Next I die cut some snow flakes and holly leaves and used some pretty flowers to frame my image which I attached with silicone glue and a Christmas sentiment almost finishes off the card, all that was left to do was to add some glitter glue to the centre of the snowflakes and to the stockings on the image

I hope that you like my card and that it has given you some inspiration to enter the challenge yourself

Thanks for taking the time to read this blog and please feel free to leave me a comment

Best wishes and Merry Christmas
