I have a surprise for you!

And I must say, it was a surprise to me as well!  I was chosen to be the SURPRISE Guest Designer at the Bugaboo challenge blog for the month of March!

This is SO COOL!  I absolutely LOVE Bugaboo images, and I use them quite often on my cards.  So without further blabbering, here is what I have made for the Anything Goes challenge:

I actually had the Bobblehead Reindeer sitting on my desk for a bit, and thought, "OK, time to get colored!"  With the head area being so large, I had to go over it 3 times to get a good blend, but I am happy with the end result.  I used some Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas patterned paper behind my reindeer, and placed some slivers of coordinating green card stock along each side.  I used that same green card stock for the sentiment, which is also Lawn Fawn.  (I love Lawn Fawn, too!)  Pretty simple card, which I love!


12 Months of Christmas Link Up #51:  ATG, or option to use brads, buttons, and bows
CHN Patterned Paper:  ATG using patterned paper
Di's Digi Challenge:  Include an Animal
CHNC #427:  ATG or vintage/shabby chic
Papercraft Challenges#31:  All the Critters

Thanks for stopping by today...please stop over to the Catch the Bug Challenge blog, and join in the fun!

Take care, and God Bless!
