Christmas with Stars and Stripes

This week's Christmas card challenge at Holly Jolly is a stars and stripe theme and this is the card I created for the challenge. Bugaboo Digital Stamps are our sponsor this week and that means a great prize for one lucky participate in the challenge.

Bugaboo had a great selection of images that I could have chosen for this challenge.  Check them out here. My card was made using the Magical Christmas image from Bugaboo.

I used sparkly fluff for the trim of the hats, diamond glaze on the eye glasses, Copics and glitter pens to colour the image.  To complete the card I added some die cut stars cut from some red glitter paper from my stash. 

Thanks for stopping by and come join us at Holly Jolly this week.  Christmas is just a round the corner and this is a great time to get your cards made for this year.
