Feature A Creature

Good morning all!
I hope your week is going well so far!
We're currently on a staycation here in Edinburgh for the Fringe.
Having a great time & seeing lots of interesting things!

It's time for the brand new challenge over at Crafting For All Seasons!
Where the theme for this fortnght is
Here's my card!
(I'll apologise straight away for the quality of the photos but I just 
couldn't get the pics I wanted!)

A fairly simple Christmas card (I need millions of these!)

Our sponsor this time is Lacy Sunshine
Fabulous sponsor in 2014

The DT were kindly given images to play with!
The image I have used is - Santa Pickles
The base card is an A6 Kraft card & the DP is by First Edition.
I used a die to cut the shaped end. 

I coloured Pickles using Promarkers, trimmed the image then edged with a 
Colour Q liquid chalk inkpad then matted on to some Kraft card stock

I used some Washi tape from my stash to add a border, then
finished with some buttons threaded with twine!
The snowflake fell on to the card when I was rummaging about in my 
Chrismas stash so I decided to leave it there!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you in the challenge!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew - Christma
Retarte - Anything Goes and/or Christmas
Eureka Stamps - Add A Button
