Christmas in August

(Click here for the Goodie Giveaway.)

Good morning!  Today is the day for a new challenge from the ladies at Creative Card Crew; this fortnight our challenge is Christmas and our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.  Thank you to Bugaboo for this fun Stella image...she always makes me laugh!

The image is colored with pencils and I've added a bit of glitter to the Christmas balls and her Santa hat.  Who says Santa hats have to be red?!  I used some hoarded papers from my stash and a computer generated sentiment.  I added some simple ribbon and a couple of mini brads for embellishing.

Image: Bugaboo Digital Image
Ink: Printer
Papers: PTI Stamper's Select and Raspberry Fizz, SU! Pear Pizazz, KI Memories DP
Embellies: PTI Raspberry Fizz Grosgrain Ribbon, Spare Parts Brads, Doodlebug Glitter (hat), Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter (ornaments and eyelids)
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's cards and maybe even play along with us for a chance to win a prize from Bugaboo!

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:

Challenge Up Your Life: Christmas in Summer
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long: Non Traditional Colors
Deconstructing Jen: Sketch
Paper Playtime: Polka Dots and a Sentiment

Thanks for stopping by!
