CES Challenges - Anything but a Christmas Card

Happy Saturday!! 

So, who's got their Christmas shopping done?? I only started it yesterday and have quite a bit to go -, that's me, lol!! 

This week on CES Challenges we want to see anything but a Christmas card. I know I've made so many xmas cards that I'll be putting some up for next year!! haha. 

Here is my take on it... 

I've used another new release from Whiff of Joy, called Happy New Year Ben. My papers are Basic Grey Marjolaine and they are matted with dark brown and green card.

I've coloured Ben using copic markers
Skin: E51, 21, 00, 000 & E02{cheeks}
Hair/Shoes: E53, 51, 50
Suit/Top hat: E44, 43, 42
Sash and hat trim: Y28, 26, 21

All of my papers have been distressed using Brushed Cordoroy and I've added some luscious brads and pearls to 2 of the corners. The sentiment is also from Whiff of Joy. I did the border work using the Nostalgia border die.

Thanks for popping in today, be sure to visit my teamies' blogs to see what they've created. 

Have a wonderful weekend!
