Show Me An Ugly Sweater

Here I am with new about Holiday Chaos Day #4  at Catch The Bug.  I hope you've been playing along with us, all week! You don't want to miss out on the great prizes that are up for grabs!

The theme, today, is to create a card or project based on one of our recipes for a family member's ugly sweater! Sounds like fun, doesn't it?! Come over to Catch The Bug to check out the recipe list for the ugly sweaters in the family! Come pick one, create your project and link up to win!

For my card, I chose to create using the recipe for Dad's Ugly Sweater.  The recipe is to use Blue, Green, Gold + Santa.  This image is perfect, too, with the adorable guy dressed up as Santa, putting gifts under the tree.  I've used the image AKV Christmas - Under The Tree (New November Release), from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I think this card turned out great, with the colors of blue, green and gold - I had never thought to use this color combo before now! All papers are from my stash. Don't you love the blue paper with snowflakes on it?! I used gold glittered ribbon and gold glittered flatback pearls.  I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add glitter to the star on the tree. The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
