ABC Christmas Challenge - C is for...

We have a brand new challenge for you today over at the ABC Christmas Challenge...Miria is the host...and the theme is:

'C is for Charming'
(Feature a charm on your project)

We have three fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

Photobucket


The prize in a $15 voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp store


The prize is a$10 gift certificate for the Stamp Fairy store




The prize is a £10 voucher for the Ribbon Reel store


The stamp I've used on my card ('XMouse Ornament' by Penny Black) is an old favourite of mine...he's so cute...and very quick to colour! I used a couple of shades of blue card for the background, embossing the lighter one with my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and Sizzix 'Snowglobe' folders. I cut the snowflakes using Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs dies...and the charm and twine is from my stash.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies and some wonderful guest designers from our sponsors, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
