Merry Monday Guest Designer


After my snow card won at Merry Monday last year, I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest Designer for this year's first challenge (and get my first Christmas card for 2015 finished!).

The challenge is to use a snowflake on your Christmas card.


I used similar colours to the inspiration photo, using a Papertrey snowflake and a Tim Holtz sentiment, with pearl embellishments.

I think that the font and the colours give my card a retro feel - fun!
