I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas...

Hi all! Wow, the weekend again already, so time for my Squiggles Stamps design team creation!
I was very pleased this week when Tracy sent me this fabulous new 'Tree Of Joy' digistamp by Orange Bird Studios. Although it's fun to colour all of those cute images out there, some of my Christmas card recipients just don't do cute, so this image would be perfect for them.
I thought I'd make a start straight away.

I've made a contemporary card which is completely white except for a splash of pastel Promarkers on the image.
The actual card shape is really easy to do. It's just a sheet of A4 card with 3 folds.
The papers, sentiment, and card candy are all Craftwork cards.
The Nestabilities I used are 'labels seventeen'. I also used Gemstones cardstock, my Martha Stewart zig zag embossing punch, snowflake punches, and some self adhesive pearls.

I made this to enter into the following challenges..............
I LOVE PROMARKERS....white on white
COLOUR CREATE........all white
Charisma Cardz.......anything goes
ALLSORTS.....plain & simple
I also made another quite different card with this digi, that I will show you later.
I think this image is fantastic as a digi. I might print it out really large for my next card, so it fills the whole of an A5 card or something, and then go to town on the baubles and decorations. However if you prefer regular stamps this will also be available in rubber in the near future.
Have you checked out our 'Anything Goes' September challenge yet?? With a fabulous £30 prize to spend instore, you'd be a fool to not have a go. Just think how many stamps or digis that will get you! You will need to use a Squiggles image to enter the competition. Digis are available from just 99p, and can be downloaded straight away. So why not pop over to the store and see if anything takes your fancy?
Don't forget you can find lots of Squiggles inspiration on the Squiggles blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'll be back later to show you my other card and to catch up on all your blogs too.
