ABC Christmas Challenge - L is for...

We have a brand new ABC Christmas Challenge for you today, where Carissa is the host with a theme of:

'L for Lyrics'
We want to see Christmas projects inspired by the words of a Christmas carol/song.

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

Prize - a $15 voucher to spend at Simon Says Stamp

and

Prize - 2 digis from the Saturated Canary store

I've been inspired by the song 'Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer'...and used a cute Whiff of Joy stamp called 'Wee & Reindeer'...I coloured it using watercolour pencils...and gave my reindeer his shiny red nose with a dab of Glossy Accents. The papers are from the 'Blitzen' pad by Bo Bunny...I distressed the edges a little, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The gold lace is from Dunelm Mill.


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.
