Charisma #36 - Inspired by a song!

This week I've been off work and getting into the christmas crafting mood!

So here's my latest offering for Charisma, a card inspired by We wish you a merry christmas, of course!

Bunny Zoes Crafts are offering a £10 gift certificate!
The Stamping Boutique are generously offering 5 digis of the winners choice!!

For my card this week, I've used my new Christmas Kitties LOTV stamp! I've coloured it with promarkers, and the eagle eyed of you might notice that one is brown and one grey ;) wonder why I chose those colours!! I've inked the edges with Peeled Paint Distress ink and used my new Stiches stamp from TandA stamps to do the border, as I am totally rubbish at doodling stitches!
The paper is from the MME christmas paper pack that came with the latest issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft, and I've inked the edges of this with Fired Brick DI.
The sentiment stamp is also from LOTV and the ribbon is from May Arts. Sparkly stars and gems are from stash.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
