Lemonade cat at Christmas QKR

    Hi Everyone here I am with my DT card for today

This is for the challenge at QKR. Our challenge is on the 1st and 15th of every month, so you have 2 chances every month to enter the challenge.

We will select two winners each of the weeks 
1 using QKR Stampede  or Eureka Stamps image
 and 1 using any image!

Anything Goes every 1st & 15th of the month

I love this image and thought he could be used as a Christmas card,  I went looking for a sentiment to suit him and Christmas, which I found on the web, however, I didn't take the link and can't find it now, - sorry! I started, unusually, for me, by choosing a sketch inspiration for the design. I then chose a few dp papers from the same kit (Frosty The Snowman). I cut them out and attached them to the card, then die cut a gold mirror card centre. I took the image and the background, adding the sentiment to it, into my digital die cutting machine, printing and cutting both the background and the image, the image was cut 3 times. 

After printing, I coloured the image in Distress inks and layered them onto the circle background, all then added to the gold circle. I added clear sparkle pen to the snow on the sentiment and the glass. A few die cut snowflakes, a few gems and it was done. I hope it gives you a smile as it does me.
