ABC Christmas Challenge - W is for...

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

'W is for Wishes'
(Include the word 'wish/wishes' on your project)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Wild Rose Studio:

The prize is this fab die:
I picked a 'Christmas Wishes' sentiment from a Pollycraft set for C. C. Designs...and paired it with a cute Lili of Valley James the Bear stamp called 'Present Pile'. I stamped him using Versafine 'Smokey Gray' (or rather 'Smoky Grey' in English English!) ink for a softer almost pencil effect. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, the distressed the edge a little. I covered a panel of plain card with strips of snowflake covered washi tape for the background, then layered it all up.

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.
