ABC Christmas Challenge - C is for...

I'm back with another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge, where the theme is:

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

We have three fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

Photobucket

The prize is 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


I've used a Penny Black stamp from the 'Jolly Friends' set on my card...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. For the background I embossed plain card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' and Sizzix/BasicGrey 'Snowglobe' folders. I added the little stocking charm (sorry, it's been in my stash for so long I can't remember where it's from!) on some Baker's Twine (from the Ribbon Girls).


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