ABC Christmas Challenge - E is for...

This fortnight's ABC Christmas Challenge is hosted by Annette...and the theme is:

'Eyes down for Bingo!'

Simply pick a row or column...go corner to corner...or go mad and use them all!

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge:

And the fabulous prize:


Shape EZ:

I picked the bottom row (Ribbon-Animal-Die Cuts) and used an adorable Stamp Fairy bear image called 'Barry Winter - Skis' for my card. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added some Stickles to the snow. I embossed some Core'dinations card using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder, then sanded over the top alittle to reveal the core. I distressed all of the edges, added some spotty ribbon (from Hobbycraft absolutely ages ago!) and some die cut snowflakes (Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies.

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