ABC Christmas Challenge - D is for...

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Lols is the host and the theme is:

'D is for Don't Overdo It!'
(In other words keep it simple!)

Our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up:
Prize - 2 Digis of the winner's choice!

I've used a cute James the Bear stamp by Lili of the Valley on my card...he's called 'Little Star'. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, added a sentiment (from the 'Scribby Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous) then used one of my Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside' border dies to cut a curve in one side of the panel. I covered a scrap of white card with some gold spotty washi tape and attached it to the edge of a red card blank, then added the main panel on top popped up on 3D foam pads.


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.
