ABC Christmas Challenge - C is for...

We have another new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Bettina is the host...and the theme is:

'C is for Colourful'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Meljen's Designs:
Prize - 4 images of the winner's choice!

I used some brightly coloured papers from a couple of My Mind's Eye pads ('Ooh La La' & 'Merry Little Christmas')...and combined them with a cute Penny Black image (from the 'Christmas Outdoors' set) which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I distressed the edges of the papers a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.


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.
