Critter Christmas

Today's card encompasses 3 Christmas card challenges....Jingle Belles, Tis The Season and Merry Monday.

I've missed the last few Jingle Belles challenges so I wanted to sneak in today
before the current challenge closes. Stef and Lauren want us to use "creatures" on our cards. I'm very traditonal when it comes to my cards and images so I have a hard time breaking out from that. This is the closest I think I can come to an unusual creature....a beaver(at least I think its a beaver LOL).

My layout comes from the current sketch at 'Tis The Season. There is also an optional trimming of stripes and I went a bit liberal on that....the rows of circles on the DSP create stripes right? Well, today they do LOL

Merry Monday wants us to use the colors red, aqua, white and to also incorporate circles. Done!

I really hate the way this card photographed, it is SO cute in person! The image is layered on circles and popped up with dimensionals, and the banner is also popped up.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Merry Crittermas(retired)
Paper: Taken with Teal(retired, Ruby Red(retired), Whisper White, Holiday Lounge DSP(retired)
Ink: Black StazOn, Ruby Red, Sahara Sand, Taken With Teal
Accessories: Big Shot, Bitty Banners Framelits, Nestabilities Circles/Lacey Circles, dimensionals
