Heather Ellis Pure Innocence with Totally Gorjuss Crafts & Me

So many cards needed for Christmas and so little time.  But I managed to make these four with some fabulous Pure Innocence images by Heather Ellis.  You can buy at least three of the four here AND they are on sale at only £0.50 each!!!  What a bargain!
I used only two sheets of 8x8 Dovecraft "Let it Snow" to make all four cards, mounting on just one sheet of 12x12 DCWV lime green from (I think) the Brights collection.  A lot of gutting was involved mind you. 
Here are the closeups...

My colouring medium is Copics and I used some sort of flower flock for the fur trim (thank you Alex!) and Stickles for the snow.  I added a ribbon, a Marianne snowflake duo, a little Gem (thank you again Alex!) and a Stamps Away sentiment cut with an SU Tiny Tag punch to each card.  I made all four in two afternoons which is very fast for me!!!!

Crafts and Me #57 have a colour challenge this week for "blue green & pink" and the first and last of my four makes definitely fit their challenge.  The same two cards fit equally well, I think, into the challenge for a "pastel Christmas" at Totally Gorjuss #103.

Oh how lovely these are. All different, but still the same and adorable. Love the combination of the papers with icestars and the real icestar.

This is a fantastic idea. You chose your favorite papers and if you can't chose which image to use, just use them all. Fast, fun and each card is unique. You are on a Leslie, I love the plaid paper on Thursday's post too!
