ABC Christmas Challenge - A is for...

We have a new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...we're starting our sixth run through the alphabet! It's my turn to host, and we have a nice & easy theme for you (with an optional extra if you fancy a tougher challenge!):

'A is for Anything Goes'

(Optional Extra - Antlers)

We are sponsored for this challenge by Zlatoena's Designs:
Prize - 2 Digital Images of the winner's choice!

I used a cute Penny Black stamp called 'Reindeer Antlers'....which I coloured using watercolour pencils. For the background, I embossed some blue paper using a Sizzix folder...sanding over the raised areas to reveal the white core...and cut a few trees using a Marianne Designs die. I layered a white one behind the stripey green one (paper from the 'Merry Little Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye) to look like snow on the branches...and a kraft one at the back to give the tree a brown trunk. The sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp.

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