Altered Frame for Nicecrane Designs

You can`t miss this stunning Altered Frame by Astrid Maclean Today I am sharing an altered frame I created with one of the adorable Christmas Images fromNicecrane Designs.

Right, so then I started to add several layers as a backdrop to the image and forgot to take further step by step photos, - usual story with me, I get so into the process that I totally forget about the old camera.

As you can see, I added the image (a black and white one from one of Nicecranes many wonderful Christmas Images) on top of several other layers. Here is a close up of the image

You can find all of his wonderful Christmas images HERE.

Christmas Children Greetings
Vicky  followed the same sketch as in her my last card but with a great digi from Nicecrane designs.  "I used one of the great digis from Christmas Children Greetings. And Julie Anne if you are reading this please STOP right now ;o)"

So I made this card for my SIL and brother who will be celebrating St-Nicholas day this week.

The paper is from MME - Holly Jolly. I added some little pearls from my stash and that's pretty much it!!! Lots of layering lol

Here's a closer look at the precolored digi.

I followed this great sketch and barely have time to enter the challenge lol

And here is the sheet:
