QKR Stampede Challenge #222 - Christmas Cards

Here we are the middle of December and NINE days til Christmas!  I am DONE shopping except for a couple things for hubby AND the wrapping is DONE too!  The baking is another story tho!  Our challenge this week at QKR Stampede is "Christmas Cards".  I chose Eureka Stamps image #16804 Christmas Carosel.  I will be giving this to our great niece since she LOVES horses.  I colored her with copics, cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangle die, fired brick distress ink around edges gold stickles on the bells, clear wink of stella on the top and bottom of the pole, and glossy accents on the holly berries.  Striped paper from Recollections and cs from Craft Smith.  Martha Steward holly punch and gems from my stash on the corners.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see the FESTIVE cards my DT sisters have made and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!
