ABC Christmas Challenge - S is for...

I have another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge today, where the theme 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 star shaped card this time, cutting the shapes using my Nesties...I had to draw around the outside of the largest die and then cut by hand for the green stars - there are two...glued at the top to form the card. I used my Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder to emboss the red card...sanding over the surface to reveal the coloured core. The tree is a Marianne Designs Creatables die...cut from more Core'dinations card, the brad is from Tescos, and the wee mouse is from the 'Holly Jolly' set by Penny Black.


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