ABC Christmas Challenge - M is for...

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

'M is for Magical'
(Either feature some magical creatures or a magical sentiment)

We are sponsored for this challenge by Shape EZ
Prize - 2 Templates of the winner's choice!

I picked a sentiment including the word 'magic' (from a set by Three Bugs in a Rug) and a cute Lili of the Valley stamp simply called 'Santa'...I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, and added some sparkle to the snow with some Stickles. The papers are from the 'Merry Little Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges 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.
