Boy's Christmas, My GDT Card For Lili's Little Fairies

Hi my lovelies, yes another post from me today. I had a busy weekend putting all of these cards together, I can tell you. Last Thursday I logged on to Lili's Little Fairies and saw that I'd been chosen as the GDT for October, I was so thrilled, and here's my first card.

The theme this week is 'Christmas Cards For The Boys', I must confess I usually cringe at the thought of boy cards, but this idea popped straight into my head and I'm really pleased with how it has turned out. I've coloured James Bear - In The Snow with my distress markers. I wanted snow, but with it being a boy card I didn't want it too glittery, so I put Glossy Accents on and then sprinkled Diamond Dust Twinklets.

The paper is Krafty Christmas from LOTV, I've distressed the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and layered it onto some green bazzill. I've used 50mm Natural Soft Hessian Mesh from the Ribbon Girl.

The snowflake is a die from Whimsy Stamps and I've had those brads an age, they're ideal for boys cards, but I'm sorry I don't know where they're from. 

The sentiment is part of the Christmas Handwritten Sentiments from LOTV, the Idea-ology Hinge Clip is from Live and Love Crafts.

I'm entering this into 'Y for Y Chromosome' at The ABC Challenge.

Hope you're all OK,
