Blue Snowman

I quite liking creating Christmas cards with a blue colour scheme.  I suppose it is because blue falls in the cool colour range and Christmas images are often snow based!

I am entering my card into these challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - Christmas in July (freebie image)
Crafting For All Seasons - Tic Tac Toe (Blue + button + ribbon)
Winter Wonderland - Blue Christmas
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Non Traditional Colours
CHNC - Layer It Up

I have created a blue polka dot background using a Memory Box stencil and Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass.  I added some blue snowflake patterned ribbon that I have had in my stash for some time.  The image is a freebie from Crafty Sentiments.  I added three blue buttons from my stash


  1. A gorgeous Christmas design Suze. Just love the scrumptious see through ribbon.
