ABC Christmas Challenge - N for No Rules

Hi Crafters,

We are up to the fourteenth letter of the alphabet in our Christmas challenge at ABC Christmas.
Our theme this time is

N for No Rules

that means easy-peasy Christmas Anything Goes!

I've gone with traditional colouring, a shaker element and wooden words here on my card.

The wooden words have been painted and then glitter embossed and my papers are from First Edition 'Christmas Wishes' paper pad. I created the shaker windows using a set of dies from JustRite Dies.

Our sponsor 
are offering 7 digital image to the lucky winner.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Allsorts - #368 Gingham Style
Christmas Cards All Year Round - July ATG Christmas
Crafty Calendar - Punches and or Dies
Craft-Dee Bowz - ATG + a Bow
CHNC Every Saturday - #288 Vintage or ATG
Come & Get It - #125 Christmas in July

Well that's all from me... see you again soon!

Oh dear lord, 14?!! I've barely started on mine ....again *sigh*. Love all the elements you've included on your card Lorraine, like the shaker windows and chipboard words, so on trend, but still has that unique edge :) xx

You can't beat a bit of red and Kraft; it's certainly a fave combo of mine for Christmas. It does give a lovely traditional feel with the wooden words, but the shaker element gives it a modern twist...such a brilliant design :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
