Sparkles Christmas.......what's your fav colour??

Well good morning lovely crafters.......are you all well today?
It's a gorgeous day......think I'm gonna go have a mooch around
town! But first, today is the start of our new challenge over at
Sparkles Christmas Challenges and our theme is "Your fav festive
colours". So,  here's a card I made using my fav traditional red &
my bargain stamp! You might have noticed I don't usually stamp
teddies, they're not really my thing and to be honest.......I'm rubbish
at colouring them but when I saw this cute stamp set on sale at 
75p......(there are 6 stamps in the set!) I just had to buy it..
......would have been rude not to lol. Don't forget, you can make
 anything you like just so long as it fits the theme, you have a month
 to play AND have a chance of winning a fab prize:
£10 to spend at Fantastic Ribbons!
So do come join us.....we'd love to see you & you can check out
the fabby creations from the rest of the team!
stamp - Fizzy Moon
papers - Boofle & Dovecraft
coloured with Spectrum Noirs
snowflakes - Sizzix die
