Ten Up!!

Hello again everyone.
This is my second post for today and is a little more adventerous than the last one.
So here goes then:  First things first let me show you the card I made:

This is the first time I have attempted an easel card but I'm so glad I did because I just love it.  The image is one of Wendy's October releases at Digital Delights and is called Jingles the Snowman - ain't he cute?!  He is coloured using watercolour pencils and sakura gelly glaze pens.  His body and face are covered with white glitter and the band on his hat with blue glitter. The whole image is then mounted on holographic card to give a border effect.
I have used a piece of blue card across the base and put a piece of ribbon (crafty ribbons purchase) across the middle of it as a sentiment.  As this is an easel card I have used a white brad with a blue snowflake on as the stopper and I have also used a silver brad in the middle of the flower which I made using two different flower punches bought from Hobbycraft and have punched out two of each size in holographic card and blue shimmer paper.

So here are the challenges I am entering my little snowman into:
Allsorts challenge - Bring out your bling (glitter, holographic card and flower)
Colour Create Challenge - Colour combo - Blue, silver and white.
Cooking it up with Katie - Christmas Theme - add some sparkle and use a border.
Crazy for challenges - Easel card
Gingersnap Creations - Spicy Supply Challenge - Use brads
One stop Craft challenge - Cards for kids (I think any child would love this)
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Winter them - use glitter/sparkles and ribbon
Saturday Challenge - Easel Cards
Stampin B's Design Team - Christmas Card
and last but not least:
Your next stamp challenge - Christmas Card without using Red or Green.
I make that ten challenges in all and I will definitely be making more of these fabulous easel cards.

Post publishing edit:  Sorry guys - this one was only for nine challenges after all.  The Your Next Stamp Challenge says you have to use a YNS image on your card and I didn't but obviously I couldn't change the post title because I'd already entered it in all the others.  Hey ho!!
