Guest Designer - Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge

Hi, everyone!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome my new followers - papierelle and Roberta Stevenson - thank you for joining me!

Happy November!  I am excited to announce that I am a Guest Designer at Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge this month!  Yay!  

Our theme is Holly, and there is an awesome prize up for grabs!  One random winner will receive a $25 gift code to Topflight Stamps!  Woot, woot!

I hope you'll be inspired to head over to Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge and play along!  Just link up a newly created Christmas card with at least one holly image.  Your card can be Coffee, Tea, or Hot Cocoa!  The challenge starts today and runs until November 25.  

My holly-themed card was made using Your Next Stamp - Tea-riffic Holly Day.  I coloured the image with markers and added some details with a white paint pen.  I added Star Dust Stickles to the white part of kitty's hat and Yellow Stickles to the poinsettia center.  I fussy-cut the image so I could pop it up on foam tape, and stamped the sentiment in black below the image.  It says, "Have a TEA-riffic Holly-Day!"  I added die-cut holly leaves (Nicole Silhouette) in sparkly green cardstock and embellished with several small red sequins to represent holly berries. 

Thank you to Amy and Lisa at Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge for inviting me to be your Guest Designer!  I'll be back mid-month with some more inspiration!

I would also like to join the following challenges:

Love the image and love the colour scheme Kitty, you did a great job with the colouring! You've definitely nailed the "holly" theme too. I really like the glittery die cuts you added and the sparkly sequins, they add lots of glitz to your holiday card! Fabulous!

The little kitten has a lot of fun hiding in the cup and playing with the poinsettia. But be careful, it's poisonous.
