Create 4 Fun meets ABC

I have just managed to scrap around and get this card finished in time for the Create for Fun Challenge this week where there is a fabby sketch to follow. I am also entering it for the ABC Challenge where this week it is 'D' for Diecuts, and as i have used my nesties to crop my image then I guess that counts. I have used one of my new stamps from Lili of the Valley, they are soooooooooooo sweet and a dream to colour.

I have coloured my image in with my copics and have distressed the edges with distress inks. The papers are ones that I found in my Christmas box, I think they are DCWV but am not certain. the ribbon is papermania, and the poinsettias are from my stash. when I tidied up yesterday I found sooooooooooooo much stuff that i have vowed to buy no new papers or embellies until my stocks have depleted. wonder how long I will stick to that one for lol !

The greenery behind the flowers is some sort of dried stuff, again, it was in my stash, goodness knows how long it has been there, but it is lovely to use. the tag is a Tim Holtz addage ticket. well, off to do some housework, we have friends for dinner tomorrow so I need to clean............
Take care,
Claire xx

Gorgeous card Claire! Those bears are really cute and you've coloured him perfectly. I love the layout and colour scheme.
I know the feeling about having too much stash! I've given myself a ban on buying any new stash this month and have also told myself that I'm not going to the NEC in November either.
