Digistamps4Joy Something New Mid Challenge Reminder

I'm dreaming of a White Christmas
Just like the one's I used to know
Where the tree tops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow
I'm dreaming of a White Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be Merry and Bright
And may all your Christmases be white.

Hi all, it's time for our mid challenge reminder again at Digistamps4Joy. Riette is the host of our challenge and she has picked the theme of "Something New". So anything that you feel is something car, new house, baby...or as I decided to snow. That first snow of the season, you know the one I mean. The one that changes everything around you and makes everything look "new". For this challenge I have merged 4 of Digistamps4Joy's images. I used First Snow, Vintage Lantern Girl, Mr. Snowman and Gazebo 
For my card I merged First Snow twice, once the regular way and then once as a mirror image. I then layered the Gazebo, then Mr. Snowman and Vintage Lantern Girl on top. 
I coloured all of the images with my Prisma Pencil crayons and oms. I then added clear rhinestones for falling snow and multi coloured one's for decorations on my tree. I added red glitter pen to Mr. Snowman's buttons and Star Dust stickles to the trim on the Vintage Girl's coat, mitts, pom pom of her hat, the icicles and to the snow. For the inside I did it up like a book...thanks for the idea Desire from Doing Life. 

I hope that we will see you join in our challenge. You have until Tuesday December 23rd. You are not required to use a DS4J image but if you do not only will we be really excited you will also be eligible for the DT Choice Prize of a $10 Gift Voucher. For a full list of our rules and prizes head on over to our Challenge Blog. And while you're there check out the incredible creations that my team mates have created to inspire you.

Thanks for coming and visiting my blog ~ Charlene
