Pile It On! Challenge - Anything Christmas

It's time for the final Pile It On! Challenge of the year. and as usual both design teams are joining together to bring you a month long challenge. We know that it's a busy time of year for everyone, so we have a super easy theme for you:

'Anything Christmas!'

I went down the quick and easy route, picking a pre-coloured Lili of the Valley card topper...simply adding a touch of sparkle with a clear Sakura 'Stardust' pen. The papers are a mixture of different brands...Crate Paper 'Bundled Up' (the red & green papers), Prima Marketing 'All About Me' (the blue paper) and Echo Park 'tis the Season' (the snowflake paper). I inked the edges using a little Pumice Stone' Distress Ink to make them 'match' a little better, then distressed the edges and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. 


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
