Christmas card gang!




This fortnight we had a lovely sketch to play with from SALLY. I liked the sketch and decided to keep a white background and just use stripes of paper. The papers and the image are all from Craft House Press  using the Emma Thomson Dandelion collection.  Its a twisted bunny image lol. I added faux stitching, some card candy and sentiment. If you want inspiration from any of the other ladies just click on their names in my sidebar.
I would like to enter this into

Christmas card Challenge - bows (little bow on my present)
Jingle Belles - white as a ghost, a present, a bow and christmas traditional colours
Winter Wonderland - photo inspiration (I used the red)
PaperPlay - critters galore
CRAFT - animals/pets
