Pollycraft Challenge "No Designer Papers"

Hi! Here I am again with another card I created as a Guest Designer for Pollycraft. This is the final submission to complete the month of September as GD. I had a wonderful time creating with these sweet images! Thanks to Paula and the Pollycraft DT for giving me this oportunity. This is for the challenge "NO DESIGNER PAPERS". Again I decided to add to my Christmas card supply with one of the NEW Pollycraft images for Christmas. This image is called "Cuthbert and Kiki Sleigh". Aren't they the sweetest little cuties? Here you can find this image and a treasure of others that will spark your creative imagination. Whether you're creating for Christmas or birthdays or many other occasions and celebrations, you're sure to find just what you're looking for. Now here is the card I designed with "NO DESIGNER PAPERS". This card is an A2 size card. S.U. cardstock used is Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, and Pink Pirouette. The Cranberry color is from my stash. Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder was used for the pink and vanilla panels. MS punches were used for the leaves and the cranberry borders. The red flower is from my stash. The sentiment is also from Pollycraft "Christmas sheet #2". Snowflakes were punched from very vanilla and glued behind the sentiment. Here is a close-up of Cuthbert and Kiki.
These sweet cuties were colored with both Photoshop and copics. I cut them out and adhered them with dimensionals at a little up-hill angle. The snow was done with "Scribbles" 3D paint "Glittering Crystal". Kiki has stickles added to her cuffs and hat. Cuthbert has "Scribbles" Irridescent White Mist added to his jacket trim and his hat. Stickles were added to the swiss dots behind the image.
And here is the inside of the card below.
The same cs colors were used as on the front. I have not added a sentiment yet. Sometimes I handwrite a personal greeting and sometimes I stamp one of the sentiments with rubber and ink. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you like what you see.
