A Merry Christmas

Hi to my Fellow Friends,
Well today l have decided at a very late moment to enter into another Challenge and this challenge is for
Design2Delight using the Three Colours Specified, Red Blue + White and l have used the Christmas Theme, Purely because l am ashamed to say l don't own any images from Faiths Store but l have had a look and will be purchasing one shortly!
I have taken the background colours Red,Blue + White and printed it directly onto the white card, placed the Mounted Snowman Image onto some Red Mirror Card and to give it a little bit of a lift l used Double sided 3D Form Squares, To decorate the Snowman l used some Stickle Green + Red on his hat Red Gem Stones on his Belly Silver for a little snow Red Card Candy, The Image + Background came from a Decoupage CD that l have owned for a long time but never really used it so thought this might come in useful for the Challenge,
Thank you for stopping by and hope that you like what you see l Appreciated any comments that you may leave and l always read them.................Many Thanks Sandra H
