ABC Christmas Challenge - B is for...

I have another card today for our current challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge where 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!

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

I went with 'Boys' this time, using a LIli of the Valley die cut image...I squared off the corners, and then inked aaround the edges using 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink. The papers are by Kaisercraft, and came free with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine a couple of months ago...I inked the edges of those too, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The little wooden snowflake was a gift from my lovely friend Samantha...and the twine is by Dovecraft.


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.
