ABC Christmas Challenge - B is for...

Woo-hoo! Not only do we have a brand new challenge for you over at the ABC Christmas Challenge, but we have some lovely new DT members to introduce to you! Joining our happy little team of Christmas crafters are: Angela, Chris, Emma, Fiona & Michelle! This fortnight's challenge is hosted by Wilma...and the theme is:

'B is for Bows or Boys'
(Or both if you like!)

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge:

The prize from Bugaboo Stamps is 7 free digis!

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

I've used an adorable little reindeer image from Bugaboo Stamps on my card, called 'Plush Reindeer', which I coloured using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut out...decoupaging the head for more dimension. I wanted to make a feature of the 'bow' (ribbon from Hobbycraft), so I kept the rest of the card very simple...adding a doodled border, and a sentiment from the 'Enjoy the Season' set by Hero Arts.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies...including my new playmates....please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
