Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge ~~ October

 Time for a new Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers, it's always Anything Goes but the option for October is Frame. 

Even though I was making a design team card I got my inspiration from the Jingle Belles Rock Challenge which the current one is a really great sketch and has frames. "bonus"

I picked a super cute digital image from  Bugaboo Stamps (no longer in business) and designed a 5 1/2 inch square card around the sketch, the plaid cardstock is very shiny and hard to photograph. I hadn't decided on a sentiment for the front yet. 

I added  a couple of circles of heavy cardstock to elevate the image a bit. The ornaments were coloured with spica glitter pens.

I carried the plaid/red theme to the inside and used a favourite Hero Arts sentiment stamped with memento Red. 

I am adding this to:

Thanks for stopping by today and join in the fun at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.

Oh my gosh, I love EVERYTHING about this from the sweet reindeer, to the beautiful coloring, to the fabulous red lacy edge but my FAVORITE part is how you've used the same plaid on the bias for the background and then set horizontally for the focal diamond. YOWZA that is cool! So happy to have this beauty in our Merry Sketch-mas gallery at Jingle Belles! ♥
