Just Christmas and Birthday Challenge

This week there is a wonderful sketch from Mada, I really enjoyed this sketch and will use it again.http://www.christmasandbirthdaycards.blogspot.com/

ChristmasI used a whipper snapper snowman and coloured him with twinks and added some stickles to him.I love him in these pastel colours. The main backing is a basic grey paper and I used a similar tone and ran it through the swiss dots folder for the strips, I rubbed some white ink along the strips. I did the same with the pink strip. I then punched some snowflakes and added stickles to there centres.ooops my image was straight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

BirthdayI coloured this image with promarkers (thanks lesley). I added some black stazon around the edges of all the strips, the greeting is pb and the main backing basic grey.
