Christmas Card Club Challenge #21 - Make your Sentiment the Focus

Hi Crafters,

It was Carols turn to choose the theme for this challenge and she has come up with...

Make your Sentiment the Focus


I've used this fun Bugaboo Stamps sentiment, colouring it with my Promarkers and adding Glamour Dust over the letters, I hope you can see the sparkle?
The Tartan paper and ribbon were left over from a Docrafts Christmas collection.

I Love Promarkers - #319 ATG

I'd like to thank you for your kind words regarding the loss of our dearly loved cat Lizzie, yesterday.
 I miss her dreadfully, she was wonderful company and the house feels so empty without her.
