The Sunday Challenge...

...for Christmas in July.

Over at Catch the Bug there is a whole week of challenges along with a blog hop - lots of fun.

The Sunday challenge is this sketch...

...if you hop over to the Catch the Bug site you will see what the DT made (there are some pics and links).

Here is what I came up with...

 The card is A5 size (a piece of white A4 folded in half). I cut a piece of cream card just slightly smaller than the front, inked the edges with Distress ink 'walnut stain' and wrapped a piece of abstract lacy mesh arounf the middle before sticking it to the from of the card blank.
The fancy oval matt is actually waxed paper that was used to cut this fancy die out some time ago (thank you Andy - told you they would come in handy). The scalloped oval is cut from the same cream card used on the front of the card - again inked with walnut stain...
 ...the image is a Bugaboo digi - Simple Santa with candy cane - which I have coloured keeping to the cream/kraft scheme.

Although there are a few layers, I have tried to keep the over all look fairly clean & simple - hope you like..................................................
