KK Skating

This year I'm determined to keep a few Christmas cards coming each month because I really don't want to be the stressed out wreck that I was last Christmas :) It was all my own fault for not being organised, so this year is going to be different.
My card today is a DT card for the One Stop Craft Challenge where our lovely Maggie has picked the theme of Sew Simple.
I'm also going to enter this into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Buttons, Bows, Brads and Bling (any combination of these. I've got 3 of those 4 - just haven't got a button)
I've used one of the lovely images by our sponsor this week The Stamping Boutique. She is called KK Skating and I loved colouring her up. I had to use some silver stickles on the 'fur' of her outfit and I love the way that it looks like tinsel.

I've used another masterboard for the background of this card, in the same way as yesterday's card and tutorial, only I used different coloured inks and stamps.

Items used:
The Stamping Boutique - KK Skating
Bearly Mine CD 1 Bonus Tickets
Silver Stickles
Martha Stewart border punch
Pearls, Eyelets, Ribbons, Brads and Charm from my stash
Distress inks: Weathered Wood, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Frayed Burlap
Masterboard stamps are a mixture of different snowflake stamps.

Please take a look at the fantastic projects that the OSCC DT ladies have made; they are gorgeous this week.
Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

Great idea! I always say I'm gonna make them along the way, but not doing so good at prioritizing that goal yet this year. Thanks for the reminder. I LOVE your non-traditional colors! and your use of brads for lacing is so cute and just perfect for this image! Thanks so much for playing along with Creative Belli this week and we hope you will join us again!

Love the way you "laced" up the eyelets! Great card and great idea to make a couple of Christmas cards a week so not crazy in November!

Ooh the fur does look like tinsel Sharon and this adorable image is coloured to perfection. Love your colour combo and reckon I must take a leaf out of your book and start my chrissie cards asap. Lucky you having sunshine, we have had 3 months of rain with only the odd day off sunshine.
