Christmas Kickstart Challenge #60 - Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies

It's the first day of the month and therefore time to begin a new challenge here at Christmas Kickstart!

We have a brand new elf and a new theme, so please welcome the very talented Carol from Inky Fingers.

"Hello, I am Carol of inkyfingeredcarolI live in Manchester with my husband and am fortunate that my three children and grandchild live fairly close to me. I have been crafting and blogging for many years and now I am retired, I can play as often as I like. I started with scrapbooking and then moved on to cardmaking after I decided to make all my own Christmas cards one year. I'm still hooked on Christmas cards but I have branched out to lots of other occasions now too! When I'm not crafting, I enjoy reading, theatre, cooking, and serving as a school governor. I was so pleased when Jo asked me to be a guest Elf, and I look forward to seeing all your snowflake inspiration in the gallery."

Our theme for this challenge is:

Challenge #60 - Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies

Yes, we'd love to see snowflakes on your cards throughout March! Here's what Carol made to inspire you for this challenge - isn't it beautiful!

Please go here to see Carol's lovely card on her blog. I just love the colour palette, that sentiment and all those dainty snowflakes.

Here's my offering:

You can find all the details of how I made this card over on my blog.

And lastly, it wouldn't be Christmas Kickstart without the one and only Rudolph... so here he is with his Random Raffle Prize for this challenge.

Carol and I very much hope you'll come and play along in this new challenge. Please check the guidelines before entering.
