Clean and simple Christmas card


The challenge at Kaboodledoodles http://kaboodledoodles.blogspot.com/ this week is for a clean and simple card. The challenge is being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish http://ididitcreations.com/blog/?page_id=30 and I used this gorgeous digi snowman stamp. If you pop over to the Kaboodle blog you can check out all the details of the challenge and see what a great prize you can win.
Would you believe this card was soo hard for me to make. I made a criss cross pattern on my white scalloped card using my scor-pal, glued on a strip of designer paper and a plain piece of dark green card. I coloured my image with a Promarker, added  it to my card and finished it off with some pretty ribbon and some die cut Snowflakes with brads. I soo wanted to keep adding more and had to quickly take a photograph of  it or I would have kept on playing with it. This was my second attempt as hubby pointed out tactfully that my first effort had too much on it to be plain and simple.
As usual I entered my card into a few challenges which are listed below.
