Xmas 2 in 1

This was supposed to be a quick card & it was until disaster struck! Everything was looking good until I tried to add some subtle twinkle to the teddies eyes with a glitter pen. Unfortunately I managed to turn them into zombies instead! Not the look I was really going for, LOL! Never one to admit defeat I refused to start again & resolved to salvage it with some 3D decoupaging. It would have been a lot quicker to start again I can tell you!! Anyway here it is finally. There is not much else to tell you about it, as I said it was supposed to be simple! Anyway, the layout is based on the fab sketch at Truly Scrumptious & it fits in with the Xmas theme at A Spoonfull of Sugar. I just had to enter there, as I so desparately want the wizard & scarecrow stamp that is one of the prizes!
I hope everyone had a good weekend & has a great week ahead. Thanks for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Fabulous card Andie, great colours and papers and I think the decoupage brings the whole card to life - it was meant to be.
Thanks so much for playing along with us at TS.
