My card is another Christmas card (trying hard to get prepared!) and I am using Bubble Ice skating from Lacy Sunshine.  Hope you like x
 
 
I coloured Bubbles using pro markers and layered all up using Kraft card and some lovely Be Merry backing papers.  I embossed the oval die card with a snowflake embossing folder, inked all the edges with walnut stain and added a Little Claire sentiment.  I doodled some faux stitching round everything.  My wee snowflake embellishments are two that I had made a long tome ago, they arte wood chip shapes which I painted with gesso and stamped with a blue flourish, then added embossing powder and a sprinkle of mica powder for a bit of shimmer!
 
I am entering my card for the following challenges:

Crafts Galore Encore - June Challenge

My my my June already!!!  Where does the time go?  I have spent the last few days trying to tame my wilderness of a garden and now I ache all over from weeding and raking etc etc!  Anyway onto more fun things - it's time for the new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore!  Now hopefully blogger will behave as I seem to be having some issues!  I don't know if it me, my PC or Blogger but I will persevere in any case!

Sponsored by Beccy's Place, there are great prizes and blog badges!

 
My card uses Raspberry House and was something different for me as I realised I had never coloured wood before!  I think if I did it again I would go lighter on the wood or colour or paper piece it to make it look like it had been painted.  It would look great as a shabby chic house!  In any case I hope you like!
