ABC Christmas Challenge - K is for...

It's time for a brand new ABC Christmas Challenge, and this fortnight Bettina is the host with a theme of:

'K is for Kept Safe'
It's time to use that stash that you've been saving!

Our sponsor this fortnight is:
 Prize - Winner's choice of 3 images from Kenny K!

I decided that it was about time that I cut into the gorgeous Echo Park 'Winter Wishes' paper that I was given as a gift last Christmas...but couldn't bring myself to use! I paired it with my cute Lili of the Valley 'Snowman' stamp, which I coloured using watercolour pencils - I added some Stickles to the snow, but couldn't get it to show in the photos. I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border, and added some Baker's Twine (from the Ribbon Girls) and a button from my stash.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
