ABC Christmas ,,,, E for Embossing and Embellies :-)

Hi again ;-) I'm back with another card ,,, this time it's for the ABC Christmas Challenge :-) It is lovely that so many of us are getting ahead with Christmas preparations !!! We will all have a full box of cards ready come December !! Woo Hoo !!! :-)

this week it is Dorte's turn to choose the theme and she chose ,,,

E for EMBOSSING AND EMBELLIES ,, you have to use 3 different embellies on your creation :-)

( Dorte has just celebrated a very special birthday ( the BIG 50 !! ) so pop by her blog to leave good wishes :-))

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 voucher on offer for one lucky entrant
AND The Stamping Boutique are sponsoring too so another 2 prizes of Digi images on offer too :-)

I thought I should ink up this Gruffie with Box of Ornaments again ,, the poor chap only had one inking so far ,,, and bears do like to be dirty you know !!! :-) I used Brown Memento ink this time,, it gives a much softer look :-) I coloured him with Copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink. the papers are Echo Park Merry Christmas , I embossed the green script paper with a Cuttlebug script folder. I used a Martha Stewart border punch, some ribbon, a star charm and a Tim Holtz bauble that comes in t lovely tin of Prima Poinsettia's , these are definitely my fave christmas flowers :-)

The DT have made some fabulous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see them :-)

Challenges :

Winter Wonderland ,,,, Include an Animal ( + Christmas)
Jingle Belles ,,,,, Text Me ( I used script paper and a script embossing folder )

Hi Lols :)

congrats on your GDT and Top 3 over at OBG :) - well done.

You have made me feel so guilty with this precious xmas card - lol. I had totally planned to have made at least 4 by now and have managed only 1.

Cute lil gruffy bear and I love the really rustic feel to the embossed paper and the colours. It really looks fab.

well, of course this is all-round gorgeous and a terrific card! but my very favorite part is that you've text EMBOSSED the script paper!!! & not only b/c that's the "JINGLE BELLES" part of this, either... :)'s just such a brilliantly clever touch that sets off the bear image perfectly!
