BG Challenges # 12.....Ho Ho Ho...Hurry Charlotte! Santa is here!!!!!

Well, I finally made a card for the BG challenges # 12....embossing! I have been using my Cuttlebug embossing folders on all my Christmas cards this year so this was the perfect challenge for me!!! This is # 15 out the 40 cards that I have to make. Somehow this list just keeps getting longer and longer, smile! I hope I can get them all made in time!!!

Well, isn't Charlotte trimming the tree just the cutest image!?I loved colouring it and I am so glad that I decided to use these WOJ stamps on my cards this year!!! They are just so sweet! I coloured this image with my Copics and Twinkling H20s. I added white highlights with acrylic paint and lots of Stickles for some bling!!!

In my blog hopping travels I came across a really great idea for the Qk Goosebumpz dies. Now I can't remember for the life of me, who's fabulous blog it was that I saw this on. Soooo sorry!!! I have several of the Qk embossing dies but I don't really use them that often, so, when I saw this brilliant idea, I knew I had to give it a go!!!! So, I embossed here and there around the edges of the main image and rubbed gold metallic rub-ons over the embossing to make it stand out a little more!!! I think it looks like Charlotte has left trimming the tree to the last minute and Santa is announcing his arrival!!!!

To finish the card off I added some American Craft ribbon and I used the new Star Ribbon slider die. It's one of the Christmas QK 1$ Cookie Cutter dies.

Well, there you have it!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look!
