Snow Buddies

I've been having a bit of a lazy weekend as I've been feeling a bit 'meh'.  I had great plans to get lots done but I've done literally nothing except mooch.  I've not even felt like colouring, so things must be serious!

That explains why I'm a bit late posting this card, which is to support the November Lili of the Valley Colour Challenge. You can see the colour chart here and enter your card there too.

I wanted to make a Christmas card, and although red is a traditional festive colour, I decided to focus on the turquoise and add the red as an accent, which made it a bit more, erm, challenging!

I also knew what I wanted this to look like in my head, and it didn't turn out quite as good as I'd imagined, but this is as close as it's going to get!

I had wanted the sky background to be a little paler behind the characters and darker towards the edges but it ended up being fairly dark all over.

We'll just pretend that it's dusk, shall we!  :0)
