ABC Christmas Challenge - February 2017...C & D are for?

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Wilma is the host, and this month we have two themes for you to use:

'C is for Creature'


'D is for Dimension'

We have two awesome sponsors for this challenge:

Prize - 2 free digis of the winner's choice!


Prize - $10 Gift Certificate!

Wait...there's more! There's also a fab prize bundle donated by Wilma:

I made a card for each of the two themes...on my 'C' card I featured a cute Hedgie & Robin as my creatures ('Wishes for Kisses' by Penny Black). I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then simply added some faux stitching along the top and bottom using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I added a snippet of patterned paper (from the 'Special Delivery' pad by Helz Cuppleditch) behind the image and a sentiment from a set by Lili of the Valley.

On my 'D' card I used a Poppy Stamps die called 'Abundant' gifts to cut lots of little presents from scraps of brightly coloured card, then mounted the assembled gifts on to my card blanks using 3D foam pads. Again I added sentiments from the same Lili of the Valley set.

You can see the dimension a little better on this close-up:

I'm also entering these cards into the following challenges:
