Gorjuss Christmas

I had a happy day crafting yesterday...made some Christmas gifts...and a few challenge cards. This one combines three challenges: the sketch from Charisma Cardz; the 'Christmas' theme from Totally Gorjuss; and the Winter Wonderland 'No Christmas Stamps or Papers' challenge. I've used 'Little Star' (by Sugar Nellie), watercolouring her to match the My Mind's Eye papers...they're from the 'Adore' and '29th Street Market' collections...so not Christmas papers. I used my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and 'Snow Dots' folders to emboss the plain papers, including a star cut using a Nestie die. The ribbon is from Hobbycraft, and the Card Candy is by Craftwork Cards.
