ABC Christmas Challenge - A is for...

It's a special day for us over at the ABC Christmas Challenge, as we're about to embark on our fourth...yes, fourth!...trip through the alphabet! Annette is the host for this challenge, where the theme is a nice easy one...well, we want to break you into getting your Christmas cards for 2013 done nice and gently! So, it's:

'A is for - Animals'

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

And the fabulous prize:

I've used an adorable bear digi from the Stamp Fairy on my card, called 'Patches - Christmas 2'. The glittery papers are both by My Mind's Eye, but from two different pads...'I Believe' and 'Countdown to Christmas'...I distressed the edges a little, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The snowfalkes were cut using Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies...and I couldn't resist adding a couple of adhesive gems in their centres for a little more sparkle.

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.
