The True Meaning of Christmas

Here's a little card I made last night, using this cute Bugaboo digi (I love this stamp... and it's lovely to colour)! I used my trusty Promarkers to colour the image and the papers and stars are from The Creative Cottage Little Monkeys Wild West digi kit, I think they go so well with the image! The sentiment is one from Lili of the Valley, and the pearls are from Quixotic. I'm really pleased with the finished card, I wasn't sure at first about the colours cos my hubby said 'Urgh... brown on Christmas cards'... but hey, what does he know! I'm entering my card for the Catch the Bug Challenge this week, which is a sketch for World Kindness Day.

Never ask a man his opinion on matters like cards. They are always wrong. It's the LAW!
