Truly Scrumptious Challenge #47!

Hello! I hope you're all well! I've been a busy little bee while all this snow has been around and finally finished all my Christmas cards, I did some batch making over the weekend so I'll show you them another time (if I remember!) But it's time for another Truly Scrumptious sketch, the last of 2010 with the optional extra of 'Frame it'! Basically give your image a fancy frame! I really wanted to use this cute image for my mum and dads card as it's a little bit like Poppy was as a kitten (even now as a big fat mog she tries to climb up the inside branches of the tree!) and I wanted to make some kind of haphazard frame. I couldn't find any bauble or light images small enough so I decided to draw them! Hopefully it's not too obvious! I've covered them with glossy accents to make them seem more realistic. I've also used the tutorial Dena posted on her blog about glittering over the image, I used my VersaMark pen to glitter emboss over the baubles and star on the image and I also did it over the sentiment, it's such a lovely effect, thanks Dena!
This is also for the following challenges: Mo's Digi Challenge - Glitz and Glimmer, Spoonful of Sugar - A Christmas Card, Cat's Corner - also a Christmas Card, Top Tip Tuesday - use Ribbon and ABC Christmas Challenge - Yuletide (I've used the Red and Green choice and the Holly and Berries). Thanks for looking!

Hi Beth, fantastic card - love your fairy light frame and that image just makes me smile - it reminds me of the time our cat kept climbing the tree, he had it on the floor twice so my son tied the tree to the curtain pole - and yes the tree and the curtains both ended up on the floor LOL.
