Festive Fun & Games

After such a good start with creating my Xmas cards, the past few weeks went wrong and I didn't get any finished (although I did start on two!).  I am determined to get back on track - and have made two today (very similar, so just entering one in the challenges).

The theme this week at Hazel's Christmas Challenge is Fun and Games (#90).  I finally used a really cute Scotty Dog stamp that came free with a magazine last year (apologies to canine experts - these should be coloured black, as they are definitely Scotties rather than Westies, but I am not able to colour in black yet!!).  This was coloured with Copics (G07, R46, E11, E31, W-1, C-1, W-5) and a Sakura Gelly-Roll pen for some shimmer.  An Artline Caligraphy Pen was used to make the stitching effect.  The backing paper is from my Xmas scrap folder, as well as the plastic snowflakes embellies.  After mounting this onto a base card, I stamped the sentiment and snowflake (both Kanban) with a black Stazon inkpad.  A quick and simple card - which is definitely my style at the moment.

I also enter this into -
