Tuesday Throwdown- Family Christmas

 The challenge this week at Tuesday Throwdown is Family Christmas. We want to see Christmas cards that are appropriate for a Family. 
 Our Sponsor is Stamping Boutique digital images. The images were generously provided by the sponsor, and I used Mail Girl.

 The image itself is very quick and easy to color. I used Copics and a touch of Wink of Stella. I printed out two images. I hand cut out the outer rim of one, and traced the oval with the rim cut out on the backside of my background panel and cut it out.  One image (with the rim still attached) is glued on behind the back panel, and the outer rim is glued down on the top side of the circle.
 The snowflake strip is fabric, and I touched it up with Wink of Stella to make it a bit sparkly. 

The background is called Embossed Stains and is from the Oct/Nov 2014 Technique Junkies Newsletter.
The Sentiment is from Create with TLC

We'd love for you to come join us at Tuesday Throwdown with your Family Christmas themed card! Stop by and see what the rest of my teamies made with the images!

Shelly I love your card. The background paper and the snowflakes make it so wintery. Not sure that is a word but oh well there it is. Great coloring as well.
