Ohhhhhh! We Wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a......

Merry Christmas everyone.  Oh hang on a minute, it's only the 25th September - sorry :-)  Happy Fall.

However, I do have a Christmas card for you today.  I so enjoyed making this inside step card thingy!

Anywhos, I used lots of elements from the new Polka Doodles Home for Christmas CD.  The front has a pyramage which comes in a ready to go sheet, all coloured up for you, has been inked around all the edges and raised on foam tape for the depth.

I added a little bit of Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - Clear Stardust, to the church snow and the pom poms on the snowman.

For the inside I wanted to create a sort of scene.  

I added a house (pre-coloured), the tree and fence, and little eskimo, were coloured with pencils and Gamsol. All the papers are also from this fabulous CD.

Again, I inked all the edges and then added the gel pen to the snowy areas.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
