ABC Christmas Challenge - I is for...

We have a brand new ABC Christmas Challenge for you today...Lols is the host, and the theme is:

'I is for Icy Inspirational Photos'



We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge:


From Simon Says Stamp - a $15 voucher to spend in their store!


From In 2 Stamps - a €10 gift voucher to spend in their store!

I took inspiration for my card from the first photo (I'm saving those adorable penguins for a mid-way card), and used my 'Holly & Globe' stamp by Penny Black. I inked it using 'Iced Spruce', 'Evergreen Bough' and 'Festive Berries' Distress Inks...to look like the tree and ornament in the photo. After stamping, I inked around the edges using 'Stormy Sky' and added sparkle to the leaves with 'Diamond' Stickles. The sentiment 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 visit the ABC Christmas Challenge.
