ABC Christmas Challenge - P is for...

It's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge, and this time Samantha is the host, with a theme of:

'P is for Paper Piecing'

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge:


Prize - a $20 gift certificate to spend at the Simon Says Stamp Store!

and

Prize - a £10 gift voucher to spend at the Ribbon Reel!

I've used an adorable Lili of the Valley image called 'Present Pile', and paper pieced little James' hat and gifts with papers from the My Mind's Eye 'Colourful Christmas' collection. I used the same papers on my card...doodling borders around the edges, and added a few adhesive pearls, and a Lili of the Valley sentiment.


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