Christmas Layers

This last week was very cold and wintry, with snow for several days. However I did manage to get down to the allotment briefly at the weekend to sort out the area around the fruiting bushes, which couch grass had colonised. The rabbit is very pleased with al the fresh 'hay' he now has lol.

I decided to make a Christmas card which celebrates the recent weather, being both snowy and layered up. I used a snwglobe shaped base card and then decoupaged the somebunny image as the main design. The saying is an Anita's stamp using Colour Works multi-colour ink pad. Finally two Christmas tree embellishments finish the card.
This card was inspired by the following challenges:
CRAFT 297 Decoupage

abc christmas C for colourful
fussy and fancy #132 It's all about love (hugging)
jingle belles Shape up

addicted to stamps #97 Lots of layers (decoupage used 6 layers)
Anything Goes at crafty calender and crafting by designs
