Christmas Card

Here's my latest Christmas card. I'm pretty happy with it, I used my tea effect on it again :P hehe, I should probably buy some distress inks or something. So here's what I made anyway.

The tea hadn't fully dried when I took the picture lol :P It looks better now that it's dried. I used Bo Bunny papers, and even managed to use some scraps that were destined for the bin as well - the little strips along the top and bottom! The image and sentiment are LOTV, the ribbon is from my stash, the twine is from Ribbon Girl and the button is from a cardigan lol.

A closeup of the bear, coloured with Promarkers and covered in Stickles as usual :P

My button and bow

My sentiment - looks way better dry than here. I used a Nestie lattice rectangle for this, the bigger ones in the set are so hard to use, the paper keeps getting stuck in the die :(

Anyway, that's me for now, I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Jingle Belles Challenge - Peace on Earth(Day) - Reuse/Recycle - saved scraps, reused cardigan button

Thanks for looking :)
