CHNC challenge 173: if you want to get ahead ... get a hat!

It's time for CHNC challenge 173: if you want to get ahead ... get a hat! - use a hat on your Christmas creation.

For my first card I used the 'cat in hat' digital image kindly supplied by Eureka Stamps (one of today's sponsors), colouring with spectrum noirs, tearing around a perspex oval template to give a torn distressed edge. I found some foiled 'ho ho ho' pieces to add and used quickie glue pen with Art Institute glitter on the white parts of Santa's hat. The background paper was from a magazine and the piece across the middle from my Christmas scraps box.

This is also for:
