CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AT BUGABOO'S

How's your Christmas shopping coming along?  Mine's not ... and by that I mean zero, zippo, zilch - no shopping done.  But then I must admit that in our family Christmas is more about spending time together as a family than about the gifts!

I have created a card with one of the fabulous Bugaboo images called Girlz - Shop, and used the image in a Christmas Shopping context:

The image is coloured using Copics and a white gel pen, and the gifts have the Glossy Accents and a glitter treatment:

To construct my card I used the following:

pale blue marbled CS base card
red CS mats
offcuts of 3 different DP's
2 DP flags
2 buttons tied with silver cord
2 punched snowflakes
1 red gem encircled with silver cord
a row of silver square gems
shiny silver organza bow

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:




THE HYBRID CHICK CARAVAN, #32, PHOTO INSPIRED (my inspiration came from the snow – so I have snowflakes and snowmen)
