Christmas Pringle

I have another Christmas card to share today...don't say I didn't warn you! This one uses a Sugar Nellie stamp called 'Pringle'...he's not really a Christmas image...but his present doesn't have to just be for birthdays. I coloured him with watercolour pencils, then stamped around the edges using a My Paper World snowflake stamp in 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink...then blended a little of the same ink over the top. The papers are from the 'Festive Frost' collection by My Mind's Eye...I inked and distressed the edges, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The snowflakes were cut from kraft card using Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies...I inked the edges of those too..then added a some adhesive pearls, and lace.
