The Glory of Christmas challenge 51


This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 51: spots and/or stripes. Please click on the link to see the delightful crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I've used both spots and stripes, using up an offcut of striped DCWV paper and also a piece of spotted paper that was free with a magazine. I thought that I would leave the Inkadinkadoo nativity scene stamp without colouring, die cut with Docrafts xcut rectangle parenthesis dies. Ribbon is from Hobbycraft.
