More Christmas...

Whoop whoop, I think I'm up to a grand total of 3 Christmas cards.  Only 50 days until the big day...gah.  I think a few people may be getting last year's leftovers!

Anyway, this card was a bit of a struggle, the original paper I had picked out just didn't go and the green card on it's own was a little blah.  But then I found this piece of clear packaging (not really sure what's it's from) and embossed it and wow!  I've seen this before but never done it - embossed plastic looks awesome!
I'm afraid I took a few liberties with the sketch from Merry Monday, it was very hard to work with such a loong image!  I hope you can still see the bones of the sketch there...


Challenges:
Sketch - Merry Monday
Cute Christmas - Penny Black Saturday Challenge
Die Cuts - Penny Black and More
Anything Goes - Christmas Stamping All Year
V for Vibrant Colours - ABC Christmas Challenges
Traditional Christmas - Stamping Sensations (not sure if this is quite traditional enough?)
