ICCJAN10: Have you been naughty or nice?

I like to play the PTI swaps over on SCS; it's a great group of ladies and the cards always rock!
A lot of the group are really into scrapbooking, so Banu set up a blog to post scrapbooking and cardmaking challenges. Check it out here: Inspired Crafters. This is yesterday's card sketch; we were to make a Christmas card. I like the idea of making them throughout the year, so when Christmas rolls around I'll have a good selection to choose from.
I bought this Doodlebug paper and didn't get a chance to use it this past season, so I was glad to use some today. The red is flocked, so it has a really nice texture! I considered mounting it on red, but decided against it....
The chick is colored with Prismas/Goo Gone and the hat is embellished with glitter; it is super sparkly in real life! Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter really rocks; if you get the chance to, give it a try....
The sentiment is from Pink Cat Studio; I think it's kind of sassy!

So perfect! I love that dp, it is so festive! I like the main panel mounted on the white, with the image stamped in red. I like the shading you did under the little guy's feet. Very cool!
