ABC Christmas Challenge - F is for...

Guess what? I have another Christmas card for you today! It's for our current ABC Christmas Challenge, where the theme is:

'F is for Furry and/or Feathered Friends'
Feature an animal or bird on your Christmas project...simples!

We have two amazing sponsors for this challenge:

The prize from Lili of the Valley is a £10 gift voucher to spend in their online store!

Our second sponsor is:

The prize from Bugaboo Stamps is 7 free digis!

So, on to my card...I've used one of my favourite Lili of the Valley James the Bear stamps...'Little Star'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils, adding a little sparkle to his star with a Sakura Stardust pen. The papers are both My Mind's Eye (from the 'Countdown to Christmas' and 'Believe' pads)...I inked the egdes using 'Picket Fence' Distress Stain. The snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies, and the sentiment stamp is from a set by Lili of the Valley. 

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.
