Stampin With the Dragon Design Team play with Stitchy Bear

Good evening to you all and welcome to the weekend
It's the New Challenge at

Today sees the end of the fabulous challenge which was sponsored by Rick St Dennis and welcomes the new fortnightly challenge sponsored by Stitchy Bear
The design team got to choose an image, the image also came with papers, we could you one or the other or both, well if you are going to do it you may as well go the whole hog, so I used both the image and the papers.  I chose the image Chilli Buns

The theme this challenge is 


I have used some metal ribbon and twisted it down the side to give a little shine, but before I move on to the creation can I remind you all of the Card Drive for the Ear Trust here

and the December Monthly Challenge at the CDAC here

The creation then - it is another Christmas card
 The base paper is pearlised gold, the papers are digital, as is the image.  I have decoupaged his hat for depth and added some liquid applique.  The small pink pearls are from the Hobby House and the sentiment is an MSE (My Sentiment Exactly) I used an MS border punch.  Isn't the metal ribbon funky.  Which reminds me I really must go get some more ribbon so I can try out another ribbon technique that I learnt recently.

I am entering this creation into the following challenges
Creative Cottage - Untraditional Christmas Colours
