ABC Christmas Challenge - G is for...

It's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge...and this fortnight Chris is the host, with a theme of:

'G is for Girl or Guy'
Show us your feminine or masculine creations.

Our sponsor for this challenge is:


The prize from Bugaboo Stamps is 7 free digis!

I've used a cheeky little monkey image from Bugaboo Stamps called 'Sock Monkey November', which I coloured using watercolour pencils..adding some sparkle to the snowballs with some Stickles. I embossed the background card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' & 'Snowflakes' and Sizzix 'Snowflakes' folders...I distressed the edges and added the doodled border before I did the embossing. The snowflake was cut using my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die, and the sparkly brad is by American Crafts.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
