ABC Christmas Challenge - L is for...

We have a new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Angela is the host, and the theme is:

'L is for Little Gifts'
(Either use an image featuring gifts or make a little gift)

We are sponsored for this challenge by Freckled Fawn:
Prize - $15 Gift Card!

I picked a Lili of the Valley stamp called 'Present Pile'...who can resist James the Bear??? I coloured him using watercolour pencils...the lightly distressed the edge using my distressing tool before adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I kept my card quite simple, adding some strips of washi tape...mine is from Hobbycraft, but our sponsor, Freckled Fawn, also have a lovely selection. The little red pearls are also from Hobbycraft.


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