Lacy Sunshine North Pole Challenge

It's time for a new Challenge at Lacy Sunshine and the theme this fortnight is The North Pole.  Think winter, snow snowflakes, candy canes, use anything you might find at the North Pole and you're good to go.  And be sure to check out the Loyalty Program digi, free to those who used a Lacy Sunshine Stamp in the previous challenge or 50% off in the Lacy Sunshine Shoppe for the duration of this challenge.  I've used the adorable Candi Cane Ethereal Enchantress.  She's sitting on a snow bank embossed with Snowflake Cuttlebug folder with a stenciled icicle background.  I've use Spellbinders Grand Labels Four to frame the scene.

Candi is colored with Copics in shades of peppermint and spearmint.  At the end of her canes I've added candy and snowflake metal brads.  I had the best time with her gorgeous hair and looky, it's not RED for a change.  LOL  Candi Cane is just one of the fabulous new Ethereal Enchantresses available at the Shoppe, and many were custom made for Lacy Sunshine fans and drawn to exact specifications.  Check out the Lacy Sunshine FB Group page for deets on how to get your own.

Here's the dimensional shot.  Both the upper mat and Candi Cane herself have been popped with foam and I've added a glittered acetate snowflake and a bow from wired pom pom trim to one corner and punched photo corners and tiny buttons to the other three.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog so be sure to check out the fabulous inspiration by my teamies. We can't wait to see what you create.
