ABC Christmas Challenge - X is for...

It's time for another fun ABC Christmas Challenge...this time Lisa is the host, and the theme is:

'X is for Criss-Cross'
Simply make an 'X' shape somehow on your project

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fred She Said:
Photobucket
Prize - $10 Gift Certificate!

I went for a patterned paper from a freebie set by Raspberry Road that has a 'criss-cross' checked pattern...and used it to paper piece 'Snowy' by Penny Black. I stamped him directly on to my card blank, then coloured him lightly using watercolour pencils. The sentiment is from the 'Very Merry Christmas' set by Hero Arts.


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.
