Sugarplum Christmas

Hi there lovelies and happy Saturday.  It's Shelly up on the blog today and I can't believe it's come around to my turn again already!

Have you started your Christmas preparations yet or is it still too early?  I've been pushing myself to make a start on my Christmas cards so thought I would go for a Christmas theme this week.

I've used the Teddy Behind Present stamp by Wild Rose Studio and coloured him with Copics before mounting onto lime green cardstock.

The papers are from the Doodlebug Sugarplums paper pad and I have mounted all my layers onto lime green cardstock to tie in with how I have coloured the image.  I love the colours in this pad, it's nice sometimes to do something different to the usual red and green.

For some reason it took a few attempts before I was happy with my layout and my table was strewn with nearly every sheet from the pad that I had cut into and then discarded :-(  

I've finished my card off with some blue cotton lace trim, a couple of buttons and a crystal snowflake charm tucked into the corner.

Hope I have inspired you to get into the Christmas spirit early with my festive make!

Have a great weekend.
