Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Numbers

This week, it's Jane's turn to set the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has chosen:

'Numbers'
There must be at least one number on your project

I decided to make a Christmas card...and used an image from the Penny Black 'Jolly Critters' set. I coloured it using watercolour pencils to match the 'Festive' My Mind's Eye papers. I distressed all of the edges using ink and my scissors, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment is from a little Studio G set, and the snowflakes were cut using a Cuttlebug die.



I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
