UnstampaBelles Challenge #30 - Christmas (no stamps)

It is that time of the month again :)

Time for the UnstampaBelles Challenge - which sadly, will be my last as a member of the Design Team :(
I have decided to step down and concentrate of some other things.  

There are some changes in the wind for UnstampaBelles in 2014 - our founder Merry is also stepping down, along with myself and Lauren, but do not stress, the Unstampabelles challenges will continue in the very capable hands of Susan starting January 2014 with a New Beginnings challenge. How apt is that. :-)

So, here are the details for Challenge #30 - Christmas (no stamps)
Remember, All entries are subject to the Design Teams discretion.
Prize for December Challenge includes:
Laser cut cards and card fronts - Christmas Designs
Card front designs pre-holed ready for stitching.
Card front designs with the stitching pattern printed on the card.
Christmas stickers.
3 types of star brads
Christmas foil shapes
Four pads of Sticky Notes

You can find our rules here for further information.

Please remember .............
Any form of paper creation will be accepted as long as NO STAMPS (Digital or Rubber) have been used.  Due to graphic technology any entry with a graphic image will be subject to the Design Teams' discretion and we will contact you if we feel the entry does not meet the ethos of our challenge blog.
For further information, see our rules here.

The November challenge closes Friday, 3rd January 2014 and Winners will be announced Monday, 6th January 2014 - Remember we are working on Aussie Time.

Now onto my DT submission - with my first Christmas card for the year :)

I started with a sketch from Feeling Sketchy #75 (flipped upside down, Miss Pat) and used a square card as a base, layered with 6x6 DP, hand cut Christmas Trees from scraps, decorated using a method seen on Splitcoast Stampers, Kindy Glitz added and snowflakes cut with the CraftROBO placed on Kindy Glitz whilst still wet.  Ribbon and pre-made embellishment & gold sticker stars added.

The small snowflakes are 2cm (3/4 inch) across!  

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Feeling Sketchy - sketch #75 (flipped upside down)
Less is more - Sparkle
Crafty Hands - Sparkle & Bling
Fairy Tale Challenge - Snowflake photo
