Rock on!

Good morning all!
Happy Sunday to you!
It's time once again for another challenge at
The Crafty Pad!
This week, Challenge #148 is Festive Cheer!
We want to see your projects with Red Green & Gold or Silver!
Here's my card!

I made a little rocker card!
I used the Snowman Mug image from The Crafty Pad Designs!
He's such a cheeky wee chappy & he also happens to be 
on special offer  for only 59p this week!!
The base card was made by cutting a circle using the x cut shape cutting system.
I then folded it in half to make the rocker section.
I cut a smaller circle from gold mirror card & trimmed it 
to make a panel which I centred on the base section.
Next I added some gold & red self adhesive ribbon from Papermania.

I coloured the image with my trusty promarkers then added some 
Woodware Fluffy stuff to the hat & the froth on top of the mug!
I fussy cut round the image & then added it to a matt of the gold card which was cut with a scalloped circle nestie. This was matted onto another circle which was cut with a Nellie Snellen die.

To finish the card I added a die cut greeting & a bow made from a selection of Funky Fibres!
Thanks so much for stopping by & don't forget to head on over to 
the Challenge Blog for some more inspiration from the lovely & oh so talented DT ladies!

I'm sure at least one of your  Christmas cards must be made with the Traditional Colours Of Christmas!
