ABC Christmas Challenge - N is for...

We have a new ABC Christmas Challenge starting's my turn to host, and the theme is:

'N is for Numbers'

Our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up:
Prize - 2 Digis of the Winner's Choice!

I've used a Penny Black image called 'Welcome Party', which I coloured using watercolour pencils to match the My Mind's Eye 'Blue Floral' pad...not really very Christmassy, but I thought they'd make for a good masculine card. I distressed the edges of the papers, and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The little numbered sentiment is from a set by Studio G.

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.
