ABC Christmas Challenge - J is for...

It's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge...Lacey is hosting, and the theme is:

'J is for Jingle Bells'

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

Prize - a £10 gift voucher!

I've used a Penny Black stamp called 'Carollers'...love these chickens...I can almost hear them sing 'Jingle Bells'! I coloured them using watercolour pencils...then added a sentiment from a little Studio G set. For the background, I embossed some plain card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' & 'Snowflakes' folders and Sizzix/BasicGrey 'Snowglobe' folders.


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.
