ABC Christmas Challenge - B for Baubles

Hi Crafters,

I have my ABC Christmas challenge card to share with you today.
Our theme this time is 'B' for Baubles and I'm using an image from our Sponsor called 'Merry Christmas Tree'...

Image - Merry Christmas Tree - Bugaboo Stamps
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Papers - 'The Night Before Christmas' Pad - Trimcraft
Kraft Card
Sakura Glitter Pen

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Friends - #23 ATG
CHNC Christmas - January
I Love Promarkers - #300 Use Something New ( New Image)

I have coloured my image as always with Promarkers and added  touches of a Sakura glitter pen which I can assure you looks fabulously shimmery in real life but the camera gremlins have visited again today and there was no way I could  get it to show up.
My papers are all from the same pad which I have layered on to kraft card for some contrast.

Now back to the challenge, we would like to see your creations depicting the theme of Baubles. So you can make cards, scrapbook pages, 3D projects, decorate baubles or make your own baubles, whatever you like so long as you follow the theme.

The lucky random winner will receive 7 digi's of their choice from our sponsor..

Bye for now
