Christmas Brats

In the nicest possible way of course as today sees the release of a new Christmas Brats collection at Bugaboo. The Brats are always popular and it's great to see another release with them.

I made this card using a tutorial from Inking Idaho's 12 Days of Christmas pack. It's great how it holds a few treats in the attached box and has a pocket for a tag. I layered the elf image behind the bauble to create this image. She could quite as easily be placed sat on top too. There's also a candy cane available that she could sit on.

Now the new Brats will be up later today for you to look at. It is usually up by 4pm our time. I'm heading off today and so I wanted to make sure this was posted (Blogger has been refusing to schedule for me recently)

I'm also entering this card into these challenges:
Aud Sentiments - Happy Holidays (which is being sponsored by Bugaboo this time!)
Anything Goes - Colours of the Rainbow (use 2 - I used Red and Green)
Cupcake Crafts - Non Traditional (I think the box attachment makes it a non traditional card)
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Oh Alice - Red and Green
