MMSC30 - my very first Midnight Madness GDT card

Good morning to you all and thank you so much for stopping by today. I am a little bit nervous today, because I am posting my very first Guest Designer Team card for one of my favorite challenge blogs - Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.
Here are the winners for the last week's MMSC#29:
Our Gold Star Winner this week is:#23 Super Nan
Our Remarkables this week go to:#2 Karen Wallace#17 Connie
Congratulations to all the winners!!!

The weekly bonus sponsor is Sunshine Stamps- very fun digitals. Our monthly sponsor is Fran from Frantic Stamper. She's got an Amazing Selection of Martha Stewart Punches, all sorts of punches and a Mega Selection of stamps. Have fun visiting their stores and see what you can get to fit your needs :o)

This week challenge is for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #30 As soon as I received this sketch, cotton ball, clouds are the first things came to my mind, so I used the cotton as my platform to create this cloud. Here is the sketch (MMSC30) for this week's challenge.



I am also using this card for a few challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenge #68 - Red & Green
The Pink Elephant #43 - Color Me Wonderful
Polly Craft Monday Challenge #29 - Rias Wonderful Christmas Time
Everybody Art Challenge #67 - Christmas
Stamp with Fun - Challenge #35 - X-mas

Here is my finished card. I used the airbrush to spray some Copic colors on the cotton ball (blue & yellow), then I spread it around to shape it like the cloud. I punched some snowflakes and applied stickles on them, then glued them all over the cloud.


Closer view on the image coloring.


I stamped the image from Stampin Up, then punched it out with the bigger Stampin Up punch. The image is bigger in it's original size, but because of the size of this punch and the limited space of this card, I have to punch off part of the Santa on sleigh image.

Closer view for the inside. I cut pieces of cardstock and put them through. It's like ribbon.
