Christmas Fun

It's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and this fortnight the theme is Stitching - real or faux.

I have made a Christmas card inspired by one that I saw on the Lawn Fawn Blog, I didn't have the adorable image that they have used (mine is still in transit) so I have used one of the new Clearly Besotted In Stitches Christmas stamps - I have embossed him with clear embossing powder, but of course you can't really see it in the photograph..

The papers are from the Lawn Fawn Into the Woods collection, I cut the bunting from one of the papers, the little fence is a Tim Holtz die and the sentiment is a Kirsty Wiseman stamp on a hand cut banner.  My stitched element is a stamp from the LOTV Babies Companion Stamp set.

Our sponsor this time is:

Prize: $20 gift certificate

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Ooh La La Creations Challenge - Stitching - Real of Faux
LEJ Designs Challenge 79 - Seasons Greetings
Through the Purple Haze Challenge - Winter Scenes
CHNC Challenge 150 - Outdoors
CHNC Challenge Extra for November - Anything Christmas Goes
Digistamps4Joy Challenge 80 - Stitching (real or faux)
The Paper Girls Challenge 43 - Cut it Out
