midway Inspiration post for blingy Christmas at CCAYR

Afternoon all! I hope you're well and happy! Got another quick post to show you today to remind you of the challenge over at CCAYR christmascardsallyearround this month which is all about fussy and fancy and over the top Christmas cards.

Here's what I did:





The stamp is from Imagination Crafts and has been stamped and coloured with promarkers and decoupaged up. The snow I added in the background is liquid pearls. The backing mirri card was embossed using a Darice embossing folder and I've added a hobby house swirl of gems. The ribbon and mesh were from my stash and the sentiment is hunkydory.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafters Companion August Challengecrafterscompanion: Animals (used a darice folder - snowflake)
Christmas at sweet stampinchristmasatsweetstampinchallengeblog: winter animals
Divasdivasbydesignchallenge: Christmas in august
Penny's:pennyschallenges Lace and/or ribbon
Pan Pastelpanpasteluk: Cute and cuddly

Thanks for dropping by and hope to see you again soon! Hugs! Rachel x
