A present for you

   Well a Christmas card made amongst all the birthday cards of which I still have several to make for this month, but it made a change.
   This is a Kim's digi stamp called 'Especially for you' from Cuddly Buddly. I coloured it using Promarkers and coloured the edge using distress ink. Many years ago my aunt gave me a box of embroidery threads in which there were lots of small amounts of one die number. I used one of these to embroider the edges of the image with twisted button stitches. The designer paper is Christmas paper from Kaiser Craft and I sprayed it with iridescent spray and sparkle from Crafter's Companion. I edged this with red and gold peel offs. Finally I added a sentiment.

   I  would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Send a Smile 4 Kids - anything 4 kids
   Fab'n'Funky - for the kids
   Christmas Cards All the Year Round - sparkle and shine
