It's Christmas Time

Here is a Christmas card I have made suitable to use to send to a child.  I am always a bit wary of embellishments etc on child's cards and therefore stick to paper/card embellishments.

For my card I have used the Crafter's Companion Barkley CD and have used a gorgeous decoupage sheet and printed onto 160gsm and cut out.  The buttons are off the sheet and I have punched them out with an X-cut punch, inked the edges with a chalk ink pad, punched holes with my Big Bite and finally added faux stitching with a Graph'it pen.

The card has been finished off with some Stickles glitter glue, stamped sentiment and die-cut mount for sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Jingle Bells - Red and green
