ABC Christmas Challenge - N is for...

Today, I have another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge, where the theme is:

'N is for No Nonsense'
(No Frills, No Designer Papers)

This time, I've made a one layer card...and stamped my image (from the 'Christmas Critters' set) directly on to a kraft card blank. I added a sentiment, border, and stars using stamps from the 'Bubble Tree' set by Woodware. I used watercolour pencils to colour the image.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, and all the info on the prizes from our fabulous sponsors...Simon Says Stamp and Karen's Doodles...please visit the ABC Christmas Challenge.
