Holly Jolly - Frame It

It's time for a new challenge over at Holly Jolly. For the next two weeks we are challenging you to "Frame It". If you aren't sure how to get started, the DT has plenty of inspiration for you. We are already in June, and there is less than half a year left until Christmas. Now is a perfect time to slowly start going with the Christmas crafting if you haven't started yet. And if you already started, well done, and keep going. Don't forget to link up with us to show you how you have "Framed It". 

Our generous sponsors this time are A Day for Daisies and Lacy Sunshine. Our sponsors have provided digis for the DT to play with and you can see our interpretations over at Holly Jolly.

For my card, I got to play with the cute Scotty Mistletoe A digi from A Day for Daisies. I decided to print the digi onto watercolour paper and paper piece his little coat from the same DSP I used for the die cut frames. I watercoloured Scotty and the mistletoe using distress inks and a waterbrush. I chose a sentiment from the Stampin' Up Endless Wishes set and stamped it in one of the colours from the DSP. I also chose the card to match one of the colours from the DSP. 

I would like to share my card with the following challenges:
