I approached this theme from a different angle because I'd fallen in love with this image and decided that I wanted to use it but I knew there were no more Christmas challenges to come, so I came up with a 'witty' sentiment (ahem....!) to tie it in. In case you can't see it, it reads: 'When I started out I was coming to wish you Merry Christmas but it's taken me so long to get here, I'd better wish you a Happy New Year now!!!'
To make the card, I coloured the image with promarkers and a bit of stickles and the die cut it into shape with my nesties and cuttlebug and then I layered it all up together using Imaginisce Cottage Christmas papers and a computer generated sentiment. The only thing I added was some Craftwork Cards card candy.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
- Tuesday Morning Sketches - sketch # 72.
- Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog - Recipe: 3 backing papers, 2 embellishments, 1 image.

I'd love to hear from you as always - and I hope you've joined in with my candy!! Don't forget to hop over and check out what the rest of the DT did for this challenge and take part!! Bye for now.......x
