Holly Jolly - Feature a creature

It's time for a new challenge over at Holly Jolly, thank you for linking up your gorgeous creations for our previous challenge Stitching. For the next two weeks, the theme over at Holly Jolly will be Feature a Creature. Any creature, great or small, furry or not is welcome in our challenge. Take this chance to enhance your Christmas card stash, trust me you will be happy you did it later in the year! 

Our generous sponsors this time are Eureka stamps, All Dressed Up and Lacy Sunshine. By linking up your fabulous creations, you can win generous prizes from our sponsors. And if you are looking for some creature images to get you going, just hop over and browse their images, you are sure to find something you like! And you can find loads of inspiration from the amazing DT over at Holly Jolly as well to get your creative muscles going.

For my card, I used the cute Dog Pile digi from Eureka. I coloured the image with copics and fussy cut it. I wanted to make something other than just a regular square or rectangular card and I found a great website with lots of ideas for card folds here. It's a great source of inspiration if you want to do something a bit out of the ordinary. I also stamped, coloured and die cut some ornaments using the Lawn Fawn Joy to the Woods stamp set. I used kraft card to create my card base, and covered it with pearlescent copper card. I added a brightly coloured DSP and adhered the dogs onto that. Last, I stamped a sentiment in the bottom panel and added some stickles to the star on top of the dog pile. I think it turned out rather fun!
