Penny Black Saturday Challenge #24 - Funky Christmas

What with Christmas being just around the corner I don't seem to have found much crafting time this week, but still managed to produce my DT card for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
Thanks to everyone who joined in last week .. it was inspiring to see such a rainbow of monochromatic cards LOL! Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see who won last week's prize.
So ... on to this week's challenge, which has a theme of

Funky Christmas

If you haven't got your Christmas cardmaking hat on yet, now is the perfect time, and we look forward to seeing your creations. To encourage you we have got a totally fab prize this week from our sponsor Crafty Krafts - two rubber stamps:

Rachelle Anne Miller - Gift Tree

Sarah Kay - Christmas Magic

Here is the card I have made: I took my inspiration from some scrumptious Bo Bunny papers I found in my local craft shop - I started from the funky picture of a gift, and that made me think of trying a wardrobe card that was wrapped like a gift. Having done that I then couldn't help but decorate the inside with my new teddy rubber stamp who is carrying gifts ... aww how cute!! I had great fun creating this card and hope you like it !

Image (inside:) PB "aiming to please" coloured with watercolour pencils
Papers: all by Bo Bunny
Snowflakes: Cuttlebug diecuts
Gems: Papermania
Ribbon: Hobbycraft
