Pixie Dust Studio - Challenge #1 DT card + other challenges

Happy Thursday. Wow, I just realize that I've been posting a lot lately. It's a good sign, but also means that I spent so much time in my craftroom besides my full time job and my family.

Today's card is a DT card I made for the first Pixie Challenge. For this first challenge, Kathy is kind enough to offer a freebie digital image. You can download this freebie digi to creation a project/card for this challenge. The only require is to add texture. Sounds pretty simple right, so don't wait now and go get this freebie image to join us for the fun.

You can get this freebie from the challenge blog:

Prize for this Pixie Challenge #1 winner will be a complete set of Christmas Confetti Collection (see below)

This card is also for the following challenges:
CLP #10 - Sketch

here is the CLP #10 sketch

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #58 - Four Season (Winter)

Christmas Cheer PPA16 - Christmas Cheer

Sparkle Creations Challenge Week #50 - Christmas Card

Winter Wonderland Week #25 - St. Nicholas

This is my finished card. Once again, I combined the Jolee's embellishment with my image. Since the requirment of the Pixie Challenge is to add texture, I embossed the green DP and rubbed them with red chalk. Also I added some cotton on Santa's suit just to add a bit more dimension and texture on this card.

Here is a closer view on Santa's coloring and his fluffy suit!

A little close up on the silver cord treatment and the sentiment.

Another Jolee's embellie, but I've added some pine branch from using the MS punch.

Side view to show you the dimension.

Inside view and I added another Jolee's embellie and this is the wreath!
