ABC Christmas Challenge - S is for...

It's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge...and this week...Miria is the host. Our theme this time is:

'S is for Shaped Cards...with Swirls, Spots or Stripes'
(By 'shaped' we mean any shape but square or rectangle)

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge...which means two wonderful prizes for two lucky people!



The prize is a $15 gift certificate to spend in the Simon Says Stamp Store.

and



The prize is 3 Karen's Doodles digi stamps of the winner's choice.

I went with a circle as my shape...they look really effective, and are so easy to make using Nesties. The image I've used is 'Bigsby Wreath' from Karen's Doodles...which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding sparkle to the baubles with a Sakura Stardust pen. I used my trusty 'Swiss Dots' Cuttlebug folder for the embossing.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, and a guest designer from Karen's Doodles, please visit the ABC Christmas Challenge.

I have candy on offer at the moment...if you're haven't already entered, you can do so on this post.
