Stamps R Us Challenge

Stamps R Us new challenge is to make a holiday card & is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.  You have until December 12 to get your entry submitted.  Jodie, the fabulously talented creator of Bugaboo is generously giving 7 digi stamps to the winner.  I happen to know that today (Nov 29) is Jodie's birthday so hop on over & give her a big fat birthday wish.  For my card, I chose Bugaboo's Snowman's Bells which just happens to be the freebie this week.  When you are done shopping, you can head on over to the Bugaboo Blog  & then also check out her Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.  I coloured the image with Copics, rubbed in some distress ink to shade & added Soft Flock for the snow.  The clips are from Stampin up & the paper & brads from the stash.  I don't know who manufactures the sentiment.  It was a little set I bought used & I have used it many, many times.  If you know who's set it is from, please drop me a line & let me know.   Challenges entered:
Catch the Bug - Shopping theme & use the colour black (ok, I know this is stretching it, but I wanted to enter the Bugaboo challenge so my snowman went shopping for bells & the black is the ink I used for the image & sentiment) - ends Dec 3
Digital Tuesday - Let it Snow (plus digi) - ends Nov 30
Scrapbook Sisters - Let it Snow - ends Nov 30
Inktegrity - Anything Goes - ends Nov 30
Simon Says Stamp - Let it Snow - ends Nov 30
Stamping for the Weekend - Winter - ends Dec 2

Oh so cute! I really like that patterned paper you used too. I think that due to having so much company I forgot all about the free image from Bugaboo each Friday! I'm going to hop over there and see if it's still available. Very cute image.
Love your card.
