A Sticky Christmas

Happy Tuesday everybody, did you know it's only two more weeks till Christmas, and Santa arrives with all those crafty presents......are you all ready for the big day?
I'm back again with my second post of the day, this one is for the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog and yes it's yet another Christmas card.
I used a Mo Manning image called Sticky, isn't he a little darling!
My card is a 6.5 inch x 6.5 inch card

I cut out the French Flair Scalloped Nesting die in the largest size in red cardstock, and layered the French Flair Classic in the largest size out of green paper, then layered a Scalloped Circle Classic nesting die out of red cardstock and finally a white circle classic nesting die on top.
I've sprinkled it full of glamour dust and finally a spraying of irridescent spray from Crafter's Companion to get the overall shine to it. Finally I popped the image onto a action wobble.
For the sentiment I used a combination of the word Happy and Christmas from the Merry Christmas sentiment set.
In the corner I layered up three snowflakes using silicone glue. The bottom snowflake is the snowflake 5, then the Snowflower, finishing with the snowflake from the snowflake set (a must have set at this time of year)
I've also used one of the sentiment frames on the left side of the card popping two buttons from the Dimensional buttons on top.
Don't forget the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge which this week is Tis the Season. You have the chance to win a $20 shopping voucher to use in the Cheery Lynn Designs store.
