ABC Christmas Challenge - B is for...

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

'B is for Baubles'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Bugaboo Stamps:
Prize - 7 digis of the winner's choice!

I've used a cute Bugaboo Stamps image called 'Christmas Mouse Ornaments'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I used snippets of papers (from the 'Countdown to Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye) to create a 'patchwork' background...distressing the edges, and adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. Finally, I added a stamped sentiment (from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous) on a little banner.


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.
