Susie's Sassy Challenge no1 has launched!!!

This is my Design Team Card for Susie's first Challenge which kicks off today on her blog
The Challenge theme is Christmas and runs for a fortnight. There is a fabulous prize up for grab which you can see in more detail at the bottom of this post. It is worth over £50.00 and there are blinkies for the top 3 as well.

I used an Elzybells stamp for my card and did a bit of paper piecing.
The spotty paper is from Basic Grey and the snowflake paper is from the My Mind's eye Christmas stack.
The ribbon is from Hobbycraft, the flowers are Prima and the cute buttons are from a lovely Haberdashery shop in France.

On the close up of the couple you can see the Paperpiecing I did. The girls coat is Paperpieced from a scrap of K+Co paper and the boys jacket is brown card to make it look textured. The colouring is mostly done with Promarkers and a little touch of Sakura pen here and there. The snow is white glitter glue.

I just love this sentiment, it is so sweet and I think the little button really sets it off.
I added some more snowy glitter to the Flower but I don't think it shows very well. I sewed through the button with some embroidery threads.

Please pop over to Susie's Sassy blog to see all the other cards created by the Design Team and Susie and take part in order to be in with a chance to win this fabulous prize. We would love to see you creations!
