Crafting Cafe DT - Merry and bright

Hello all,

When this post reaches you, I should be in Scotland and we'll all be waiting for the jolly chubby one to make his appearance! With luck the kids will be happy with their loot tomorrow!

I'd like to share with you now my first DT card for The Crafting Cafe. I've technically been on the design team for quite a while, but as I'm posting late in the month, it's just taken a while for my first post!
Anyways, the theme is Merry and Bright and we are working with sketches this month. I chose sketch number one, and made this card

Yes, it's James again, with his stack of Promarker-coloured pressies. As you can see, I've gone back to the darker fur here (the base colour is cinnamon), which is my favourite on him. There's a plenitude of Stardust Stickles on his hat, and Gold Stickles on the ribbons of his presents.
The card base and the mat are both foil embossed card (sorry, can't remember exactly where from, but I'm almost positive they were a magazine freebie last year.)
A little bit of gold ribbon (scrounged from last year's Christmas crackers!) just finishes it off.

The whole card is super shiny and sparkly in person, which definitely takes care of the "bright" part of the theme. ( and I will most likely be working on the "merry" part some time this evening! ;-)  )

I hope you all have a most wonderful few days, and if you happen to have a little time to play, why not come and play with us at The Crafting Cafe?

See you when I return!
