1 Card....... 3 Challenges

I have finally got a card done this week. I seemed to wipe myself out a bit doing the invites, then yesterday I needed to catch up on some h/w. So my cardmaking has taken a bit of a back seat. But I made sure I got one done today.
My card as the title says covers 3 challenges...
Cute Card Thursday...Snips, Snails & Puppy Dog Tails
Stamps & Smiles...SASSC42
Secret Crafter...Christmas Trees

So without delay here is my card

The papers are MME & BG. The image is from Penny Black. I have coloured with a mix of pens which are listed at the end. I added stickles to the star, tree, snow & brads. I used my new Nellies to cut round the image & layer. The brads are from my stash. I cut the snowflakes from blue glitter card using the Create a Flake1 die. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly.

Here is a close up of my image

As the card is meant for a younger boy I thought I would leave the inside fairly simple. x Clare xx

Pens Used:
Copics : B00, E00, E21, R29, Y06, Y17
Aqua Promarkers : Sepia
Promarkers : Ivory, Burnt Umber, Marsh Green
Tombow : 977
