Dream Valley Challenge 22 - Christmas

 Wow, the last challenge of the'd that happen?  I don't know where the year has flown to, but I've had a pretty good one, on the whole!  And I'm looking forward to a great 2012.

So, for the last Dream Valley challenge of the year, we have a nice easy one for you - Christmas!  I still have some Christmas orders and cards to make and I'm sure I'm not alone, so hope you can join us.

This is my card for my nephew, Jakob, who lives in Austria.  I have used Pip With Presents, coloured with Promarkers and Glamour dust on his hat.  The main paper is First Edition Christmas Joy, with some older paper used for matting.  I decided to make it look like a present with the ribbon and tag (cut with a Sizzix die).  

 And I would like to enter the following challenges:
Crafty Catz:  Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion:  Anything Goes with Glitter (on his hat and pompom and the paper)
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Moving Along With the Times - Last Minute Christmas
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers - Celebrations
Sarah Hurley - Christmas
