Merry Monday #141 Challenge

Today I want to share with you a card that I've made for a challenge that Im entering.  

This Christmas I found it a little sad when I did not give out one hand made card, because I made cards for other people to pass out and didn't have any on hand for myself to hand out.  This year will be different, I will start early and build a stash throughout the year that way I have no excuses to not hand out ones Ive made.  

I stumbled across a blog that Challenges me to do just this.
Every Monday they post a theme, colour scheme, inspiration photo, or technique/embellishment or sketch that is required on the card, and the rest is up to you to choose.  I am so lucky to have stumbled across this blog because it's going to encourage me to get cards done and give me a deadline, and a friendly competition at the same time. 

Once a week I will be posting a Christmas card here that I have entered for the challenge, and thats just one of the things that you can expect from me in the new year.  

I don't have to much time today to share with you how I went about Creating this card, however I will do my best to link to the supplies used at the bottom.  Some of the supplies used were from my scrap box so I may not have a link for it.

Here is the front of the card...

Here is a view of the card from the side

To take this one step further, I have decided that for every card that I enter for this challenge I will make doubles.  That way I have more cards on hand.

Supplies Used

Singin So Beautiful - Stamping Bella Image 
Letraset Promarkers - used for colouring the images
Bakers Twine - used for the bow.
Clear Glitter - on the cats hats
Stickles - little bells on the cat's collar
Peel Off Sticker - Silver Merry Christmas Wording

Die cut snowflakes and pieces of paper were in my scrap box so I am unsure of where they can be located - SORRY :(

I hope you all enjoyed this card, and I cannot wait to come back with another one.
