Christmas Post

It's time for a new challenge over at the Crafting Cafe and the them is 
Use your Favourite Technique.

I have lots of favourite techniques, there are so many out there how could you choose just one. But this is one I like and that is one layer or clean and simple. The image has been put directly onto the card and coloured in.

I have coloured it in using Polychromo pencils and I have added a little 3d snow effect.
I did die cut the greeting because I wanted a fairly big greeting and I hadn't got a stamp big enough.
I hope you like it and please join in our challenge you may win a lovely prize.

I have entered this card in the following challenges

Christmas Cards AYR - Red and White
Crafty Hazlenuts - Anything Christmas
Creatalicious - Winter
Sister Act - ATG
