Festive 48 - Week 3

It's time for me to come up with another Christmas card and get smug for Christmas 2014!

Just to recap, I have challenged myself to make a Christmas card every week , and post it here (to make sure I do it!) . If I do this, by the beginning of December I will have 48 Christmas cards. I have also issued an invitation to anyone who would like to join me.

I must say, this card looks more Christmassy in real life as it's sprayed with irridiscent glitter which doesn't show up in the photo. I used Carta Bella Winter Fun digi kit - I composed the background digitally and then print and cut the children and the bunting. 

Thank you to everyone who joined me last week. Great cards everyone and one reminded me of a the very effective 'spotlight' technique. Great work, Kathleen.

I too have a hard time capturing glitter and sparkle on my photos, and I agree that some sparkle is a great added touch for a Christmas feel. That being said, I think your card fenintely is Christmasy. Love silhouette images, and this one is kind of vintagy and looks great in combination with the more contemporary design of the background. Great card!
