ABC Christmas Challenge - N is for...

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

'N is for No Rules!'
(In other words...Anything Goes!)

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

I've used a old Whiff of Joy image on my card called 'Wee & Reindeer' which after a brief search back through through my blog posts, I discovered I hadn't used since August 2013! So it was about time that it saw some ink! I coloured the image using watercolour pencils and combined it with papers from the 'Tea House' pad by Dovecraft, and 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate Paper. I distressed all of the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The little sentiment stamp is from a set by Lili of the Valley.


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.
