Ditch the design papers with Sparkles Christmas Challenges

Hi everyone.
I hope you're all well.

It's time for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges.

Our theme for this month is Ditch the design papers.

Here's my little piece of inspiration...

I've used one of the Strawberry & Kisses stamps from Crafter's Companion, colouring with copics and adding Glamour dust for the fur on the hat. I have die cut the image using Tonic dies.
The green card has been embossed using a Cuttlebug folder.
The sentiment is from another Crafter's Companion set called 'Purr-fect Christmas' (from the Barkley range). I cut the rectangle using a Spellbinder die and matted using a mini Perfect Layer ruler (1/16).
I've added some ribbon and a Marianne designs poinsettia to finish.

I've not done much colouring recently as I have a sore neck and shoulders so I'm really pleased with this one. I'm waiting to start physio so hopefully colouring will resume soon. Anyhow, I hope you'll join us for this challenge. Please remember it must be Christmas related. You could win a fabulous prize...
