Week 47 Challenge for Polkadoodles

"The Children were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugar plums danced in their heads"  This is the line of the poem  'Twas the Night Before Christmas that inspired this card for the challenge on the Polkadoodles Blog.

I started with a marbalized piece of card stock that I made with Smooch and water.  I love the swirls, as they reminded me of "dreamland"  The bed was a die cut that I had in my stash.  I made the little girl's head and hair with a circle punch, cutting away part of the brown to make it into her hair, then drew the closed eye on with a Zig pen.

The candies were printed from the Polkadoodles Jingle Jangle Christmas CD, then fussy cut for the card.  Everything was adhered to the marbalized card stock and then layered onto a dark blue A-2 sized card base.
For the inside of the card, I printed the candy border from the same Polkadoodles CD, trimmed them down and adhered them to white card stock and used my ATG Tape gun to layer it inside the card.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you like my card.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
