ABC Christmas Challenge - G is for...

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

'G is for Green and/or Gold'

Our sponsor for this challenge is The East Wind:
Prize - 3 Digital Images!

I went with green...and picked papers from my 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate Paper, and a cute Lili of the Valley James the Bear stamp called 'Present Pile'. I coloured James using watercolour pencils...then added some shimmer to his presents using a Wink of Stella pen. I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitches using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Jolly Christmas Sentiments' set by C C Designs/Pollycraft.


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.
