LGS challenge 10th July

This weeks sketchie on the LGS group (CB) was set by GDT Kathy and the twist was that it had to be a Christmas card and include thread somewhere. There are some fabulous creations already for this challenge and they include different ways of using thread on a card, which has given me ideas for the future.I will enter this card into this weeks I love Promarkers challenge, which is distressing. I have torn the papers and matting layers round the image, inked the edges and background of the image, and inked and glittered the edges of the side panel. The snowflakes were die cuts I had bought which I decorated with white and then silver ink and finally glitter. The thread is left over cross stitch white thread which I have tried to colour silver with ink.
I will also enter this card into the ABC Christmas challenge 'N is for Noel' (sorry I have not managed the optional extra of embossing on this card). The image and backing paper is from the candy which I won from Helen's blog from the half way there blog hop- thankyou!
