I've been treating myself lately to some new goodies from across the whole of Tim Holtz's range of products.  Today I received my order of the Christmas Collage paper and the Christmas paper dolls and wanted to have a play.

I was inspired by the sketch over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and based my card on that.

I started off with the smaller panel and used some TH cardstock and covered it first in Distress Collage Medium in Vintage and then added some of the Christmas Collage paper.  I added one of the little paper dolls and coloured her in with some distress crayons.  This image so reminds me of my daughter when she was younger as she had a lovely red coat similar to this at Christmas.  

I added some Crackle Texture paste to the background piece and once dry I added some distress crayons and some more paper and stamps.  The word JOY is from an old TH set which has a matching die and the snowflake is from my stash.  The snowflake was covered in Distress Metallic crayon and then some Stickles added to it.
