'Oldies But Goodies' at Karen's Doodles

It's Thursday and that means it's time for another 'Oldies But Goodies' showcase over at Karen's Doodles
This week, I've gone all Christmassy - here's my card:

Image: Karen's Doodles, 'Santa House'

Papers: Pink Petticoat digi paper (spots); Cosmo Cricket

Isn't this an adorable image?  Santa is very lucky to live in such a sweet little cottage. 

I wanted to keep the palette quite light for this one as I didn't want the image to become 'overworked'.  A few pale highlights on the snow helped give a frosty feel, and some 3D glitter gel for the roof and trees completed the look.

I love turqoise/teal/pale blue and red so this combination of DPs works really well for me.  Apparently, it's quite 'in' at the moment, too, if you follow the trends!

Check out the rest of the OBG Team's creations on the Challenge Blog - they're sure to inspire.

And don't forget that we will still be running our weekly challenges on Mondays and this week's challenge is a recipe: 3 embellishments, 2 papers, 1 image.   Why not join in - we'd love to see your creations.

Happy crafting.
