Spoonful of Sugar - Card for a Child


Hi everyone, as promised here's my next challenge card.
This one is for this week's Spoonful of Sugar's challenge we would love you to make a card for a child
I thought that this card would be just about right for the challenge, showing a little girl on her way to post her letter to Santa.
The background scene was from Joanna Sheen's 'Messy Rabbit' backing papers and I added some of the 'Swiss Dots' cuttlebugged cardstock to the bottom to give a feeling of snow. This was mounted onto some pale blue 'snowy' backing paper and the sentiment was done with rub ons (which didn't rub on very well!)
I hope you like her and I may be back a little later with a further card. I know, I know......but now I'm on a roll with these christmas cards, I can't stop until I'm finished!

Fabulous card Chrissie - the merry christmas is really effective, but don't you just hate it when rub ons don't behave themselves???
