Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #27

 It's time for our next challenge over at CCWS and we hope you're playing along with us this year and stocking up on those Christmas cards and projects. Betina has designed the sketch this time and we are being sponsored by Whiff of Joy. We have a Bingo card for an added twist this time. I've used ribbon, lace and a charm.

The image another of my new Stampavie stamps coloured with promarkers and highlighted with a gelly roll pen. The papers are magazine freebies from Hot off the Press. Card is finished with some lace, a tartan bow, a bell charm and sentiment from my stash.
