CHRISTMAS STEPPER IN BLUE

Hi all, i hope that you have enjoyed the weekend, it has been very overcast, grey and miserable looking here but I have had my mum with me today so Jess and I were quite happy in our little home.

This is my second posting for today for my Lil Patch DT card please scroll down.
Last month I was extremely lucky to have been chosen as one of the Top 6 in the WWODT Challenge and this is the image that I won it is image 700.
This particular card fold with Acetate is a first for me I have done the stepper card fold but this time added an Acetate cover, I had seen it demonstrated on Create & Craft so thought I would try it out using my Hunkydory Snowy Acetate, the card stock is Kanban, I think.  The light blue card is Hunkydory Adorable Scoreable that I have had for a few years, I have also used silver mirror card, The image I coloured with Graph it Markers and Copics then mounted her onto both silver mirror and light blue card, the circle design behind her has been made using a Tonic Die topped with a Tonic Silver snowflake, I have also used my tree die cut with silver mirror card as the shadow, I embossed the trees with my snowfall embossing folder two of the trees I added to the outside of the acetate, finally I added a wooden snowflake and sentiment.



I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
