For my card I have used Winter Kidz with Cat from the sponsor:
I made the card into an easel card. I started off with a pale blue 5x5 card blank. I cut the outer 2cm on each side of the card front away and then rounded the corners of the back, before folding the front in the middle to make the easel shape. I layered some lovely Poinsettia patterned paper onto a paler blue card and rounded the corners of each layer before adding to the base. I used a strip from the patterned paper, from cutting the paper to size, to create the easel stand by sticking it to the base with foam pads. I also added some blue diamantes. The image was coloured with Promarkers and the top corners rounded before lining it up with the top of the card. Finally I added some diamantes and a snowflake to the bottom of the front panel.

Promarkers used - Satin; Pastel Beige; Peach; Spice; Cinnamon; Pastel Blue; Island Lagoon; Fresh Meadow; Apple Cider; Lime Zest and Metallic Red Gold.
