ABC Christmas Challenge - U for Under The Pile

Hi Crafters,

Now I'm guessing that I'm not the only one who has unused crafty stash. That special item we just had to have at the time but that still lays unused in the drawer. I think all of you out there can relate to that.
Well, our new challenge at ABC Christmas will give you the opportunity to use that item because we would like you to create a Christmas project using something that has been 'Under the pile' for at least a year.

I am using a digital image that I've had for more than a year and also these gorgeous non-traditional Christmas papers.

Image - Christmas Rocking Horse - Bugaboo Stamps
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Papers - Old Create & Craft Christmas Pack
Computer Generated Sentiment
Stampin' Up Punches
