My first DT card for The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge


I'm really excited to share my first DT card for The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge which launches it's first fortnightly challenge today!  We are a just for fun challenge where the theme is always anything goes for Christmas!  We'd love you to play along with us!

As we don't work with sponsors the DT members had a free rein on their creations so I chose to make a card using a Sugar Nellie rubber stamp.  

I love this cute wee stamp - it's one I keep coming back to!  As I've not used any cardstock for matting and layering I've added some faux stitching to the papers for extra definition.

Materials used:
Stamp - Sugar Nellie, Furry Friends
Sentiment - LOTV
Papers - Boofle Christmas
Snowflake die - X-cut
Buttons, pearls and twine from stash

That's all for now, see you again soon.
