Woohooo, I am on a roll 3rd Christmas card for this year !!

Hello, hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon

I am busy creating some dt cards and wanted to post my 3rd Christmas card so far for this year. I have been playing along at ABC Christmas Challenge and so far I have managed to create three cards following their challenge every two weeks.

This week's challenge is C and their theme is  Clean and Simple along with a great sketch to follow. Stamp Fairy is their sponsor this week, offering up a great prize to one lucky winner.




Using scrap paper and this wonderful sweet image  "I even Love the Box" from Mo Manning, I followed the sketch and realizing just how hard it is to keep a card clean and simple. I so wanted to keep adding to it, just finally stopped with just the gingham ribbon and bow (which I made using my Bow-Easy, I love this tool and would be so lost without LOL! ) So in order to add a little extra and still keep it C&S, I added Sparkly Fluff - Sugar from The Craft Lounge for the fur on his hat, Clear glitter gel pen for the bow, red glitter gel pen on tag and candy canes on wrapping paper, then added lots of Waterfall Stickles to the wrapping paper.  My SB scalloped circle is embossed with CB Swiss dots folder, Red paper is Bazzil pre embossed paper.


My card is appropriate for the following challenges to be entered
ABC Christmas Challenge - sketch and clean and simple
CES challenge - cute and cuddly
Annebelle Stamps Challenge - Say it with Polka dots
Stampin with Dragon - Anything goes
