Snowboarding Christmas

Hey, here is a christmas card I made for a snowboarding friend, quite pleased with how it turned out :)

Firstly, I stamped the Stamping Bella image 'Daisyboard' and painted it using watercolours. I cut the image in a rectangle and edged it using lilac ink. I then edged the image with silver holographic card.
Next I cut a dark purple rectangle to attach to the lilac backing card. I then cut a rectangle of snowflake patterned vellum and attached this to the dark purple. I used purple spotty ribbon up the side of the card. I used a 'Happy christmas' sentiment with a silver gem to embellish; I then inked up a lilac snowflake and attached this too with a silver gem. To finish, I used pink and purple card candy across the top and bottom of the card.
