ABC Christmas Challenge - R is for...

It's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge...Dorte is the host, and the theme is:

'R is for...well, you choose...anything beginning with R!'

Our sponsor for this challenge is The East Wind:
Prize - Three Digital Images!

I combined a few 'R's on my card...Red, Reindeer, Ribbon & Robins. The image is 'Santa' by Lili of the Valley, which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding some sparkle to the snow using a Wink of Stella clear pen. The papers are from the 'Maddison' pad by Penny Black...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs dies...and were also given a coating of Wink of Stella sparkles...and the ribbon is from Hobbycraft.


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.
