Phindy's Place Challenge #56 - Christmas in May

Phew thank goodness it's Friday!  Good Morning and welcome to this week's Phindy's Place Challenge. This week we are celebrating Christmas in May and it's a really timely wake-up call for me.  Last year I made a few cards for Christmas each month, shamefully this year this is my first card - ack!   So our challenge to you is to make a Christmas card or project - or two!  You don't have to use one of Phindy's images, but we love it  when you do - and you get a second entry into the prize draw!

I've opted for my all-time favourite image ever, the Fjord horses pulling a sleigh.  Today is my Fjord horse Barney's 18th birthday, how could I not use this image that Phindy drew!  I hoped to take Barney to the pub today as he has come of age, but he's a little bit lame so we'll have to postpone that for another day lol!  You can buy Sleigh Ride from Phindy's Place here.

My card is pretty simple really, I've coloured with Copics and given my image a heavy coating of iridisceent spray and sparkle.  DP is Fancy Pants, the ribbon, Crafty Cardworks sentiment and card candy are all silver to add to the sparkle.  OK now I'd better get cracking on some more Christmas cards, how about you?

My card is for the following challenges:
Paper Play - sparkle galore
Some Odd Girl - make a scene
Simon Says - sparkle & shine
KB Cute Monday  - anything goes using digi
Crafty Emma - holidays
Little Claire - sparkle
Stamp Scrap & Doodle - old supplies (digi and papers both from 2 Christmases ago!)
