Passion for Promarkers - Mega Christmas Challenge 2014...

 This card was chosen in the Top 3 at Inky Impressions, thanks a lot, ladies!
Well, it's that time of year again and this week sees the launch of our very special Mega Christmas challenge over at Passion for Promarkers, which runs for a whole month and ends on 6th January 2015!
Both design teams have thoroughly enjoyed creating for your inspiration and also visiting all your blogs to see the wonderful projects that you made, however it's time for us to take a little break to catch up on last minute gifts and cards.  To make up for the lack of challenges for this month, we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs!

Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “bingo”.  You are welcome to make Christmas cards but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation as long as you use the bingo board.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.
Here is the bingo board you must use for your creations (you can use any line horizontal, vertical or diagonal).  Please tell us which line you have used in your post:
So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!
Letraset are generously offering 4 lucky winners a 6 pack of promarkers (blending set)!

Crafty Sentiments Designs is offering one lucky winner 3 digis of their choice from their online store.
Both design teams will be sharing some inspiration with you but as it such a long challenge we will be posting the inspiration from Team 1 today and then in two week’s time we will be posting inspiration from Team 2. 
So here's my creation for the challenge...

...I decided to make a stepper card as I have not made one in AGES!  I used the snowman digi and papers from 12 Cards of Christmas and an embossed snowflake background, inking the edges with Distress Inks and matting onto coordinating cardstock...
...I added some silver spider's web, picot edge borders and Marianne snowflake die cuts with WOC mini roses in the centre.  The image was coloured with my Pro/Flexmarkers and cut using Spellbinders Labels Eleven (my fave die shape of the moment!)...
...I managed to fill 3 lines of the bingo board with my card Ribbon-Die Cut-Buttons, Ribbon-Free-Blooms and Die Cut-Free-Glitter, so it's nice and easy to play along!
I loook forward to seeing all your wonderful creations and hope that you all have a very Happy Christmas and fabulous New Year!

Just to re-cap the challenge will run until 6th January 2015 and you can enter a maximum of 3 times.  Unfortunately during the Mega Christmas challenge we will not be choosing a top 5 passionista but this will re-commence for the first challenge in 2015. Team 2 will be back on 23rd December to share their gorgeous selection of cards, so don’t forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog for more wonderful inspiration.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Cute and Cuddly Christmasuntil 29th
Winter until 11th
Winter until 11th

What a great mega challenge Lisa. Your sweet winter snowman is perfect for this morning, it's cold and frosty out...brrrr. That die is rather nice, another for my wish list and the little pearls on the ends of the snowflakes are gorgeous. Keep warm, hugs xx

A fabulous frosty stepper card Lisa, just perfect for the weather here too this morning. Love the snowman and the layout. Those lovely banners are a great accent to the side of the image and you have given me the push to make a stepper card myself today as I haven't made one for ages either, thanks.
