Holly Jolly Challenge - Anything Goes

I'm so excited about today's card as it's my first on the DT for the Holly Jolly Christmas challenge. The theme for the new challenge, which runs for two weeks, is Anything Goes. As long as it's about Christmas, share it with us at the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge! The sponsors of this week's challenge are Di's Digis and Bugaboo stamps so great prizes await the challenge winner.

I made my card using one of Bugaboo's funny Christmas stamps called Santa Died. Stella is just so much fun and I had a great time colouring her. I know exactly who I will be sending this card to! One more reason I'm so excited about my DT assignment is that I get to play with digi stamps which I haven't done very much in the past, and I get to work on my colouring skills. Here I used Copics to colour the image, and matted it onto some Christmassy designer paper. I thought a bit of glitter would be appropriate for the occasion so I used a die to cut out the bauble from blue glitter paper and added some stickles to the Christmas tree ornaments and around the panels. I'm entering the card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where Everything goes this week and the ABC Christmas challenge where S is for Something Festive as I think the Stickles and blue shimmery bauble are very festive (and S is for Stella as well!) and Completely Christmas and Christmas Card Challenges where Anything goes as well.
