Naughty or Nice

Hello, everyone!  I'm back again today with another holiday card!  I'm making lots of cards this month as December draws near!

I stamped Newton's Nook - Newton's Candy Cane and coloured him with my markers (Bic Mark-its and Dollarama Crafts).  I decided to colour him as a ginger tabby (much like the real Newton, who sadly crossed over the Rainbow Bridge in October).  I stamped a fun sentiment from Newton's Nook - Newton's Curious Christmas, die-cut it with a stitched tag (La-La Land Stitched Elements), and adhered a baker's twine bow. The patterned paper is from BoBunny Woodland Winter, and I finished off the card by adding some punched snowflakes with gems in the centers (Recollections punch).

My card design was inspired by the sketch at Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge 111.  I hand-cut the banner ends and doodled some faux stitching in white (Posca paint pen).  The white and teal squares and the red banner are all embossed with Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow.

I've also been inspired by the alphabet challenge over at Beccy's Place and her Month of Holiday Cards.  I missed making a card for Day 16 - "N" so today I'm going with Naughty or Nice.  I have only "Y" and "Z" left to finish the alphabet!
