A Christmas Surprise!

Today I’d like to share the first of three cards that I’ve made for the C…Is for Challenge GDT.  Today’s challenge theme is “Use a Button” and is sponsored by StampArt Design by Kathryne.2013-10-12 09.29.15

I’ve used the Christmas Surprise stamp by StampArt Design, available exclusively at Whimsy Stamps.  This adorable little elf, perched atop a lovely gift box caught my eye and was a pleasure to colour!  I used Pro-Markers to colour the image and cut a scalloped frame from red cardstock on my Silhouette.

The mats are from a Forever Friends Chirstmas paper stack; I chose them as they echoed the colours of the elf’s outfit!  Along with a red polka grosgrain ribbon, I added a lovely festive button (from the Santa’s Workshop range) which I couldn’t resist on a recent research (!) trip to a large craft store…  The sentiment was simply printed on kraft card and then cut on the Silhouette.

Thank you to Anna for letting me play along with her GDT!  Pop over to the C… Is For Challenge blog now and add your own button-filled creations!
