Christmas Card Club Challenge #17 - Use 2 or More Patterned Papers

Hi Crafters,

Hope you're enjoying your weekend.
I've had an early start today as I'm hopefully selling some things at a car boot sale by the time you read this. It's surprising how much stuff we accumulate over time and it's beginning to take over every nook and cranny so we've had a sort out. Wish me luck!

Anyway, the reason you are here is to see my Christmas card for the Club this week so here it is...

Image - Winterpengtrio - Bugaboo Stamps
Coloured with Polychromo Pencils
Papers - Docrafts Letter To Santa Collection &
Scrap box piece
Memory Box Snowflake Ribbon Die
Apple Blossom Sentiment Die

Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Every Saturday - #451 ATG Christmas
Aud Sentiments - #233 Animals + Sentiment
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - #524 Christmas
Crimbo Crackers - #191 ATG
ABC Christmas - P is for Penguins

This is the first time I've used my Polychromo pencils since buying them a couple of months ago. I kept putting off making a start, I think I was a little apprehensive as to how I was going to get on with them after using my Promarkers for so many years. I enjoyed learning the new techniques required for shading and laying down the colours though. I'll certainly be using them again soon.

Thanks for joining me today, please visit the other ladies blogs in the group for their fabulous Christmas card inspiration. Links in the side bar.
