ABC Christmas Challenge - P is for...

I have another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge today,where the theme is:

'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!


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

I used more new goodies on my card...the adorable image and sentiment stamps are from the 'Joy to the World' set by Penny Black. I coloured them using watercolour pencils, then paper pieced the scarves, hat and earmuffs using paper from the 'Blitzen' pad by Bo Bunny. I used the same papers on the rest of my card...distressing the edges and adding faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The blue & white twine is by Dovecraft, and the little red brads are by BasicGrey.

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.
