Merry Christmas - Stamp Something Challenge

Today's card is for my October Craftmad Swap partner. Hoping she doesn't visit. ;-) This month we are swapping two cards with some form of stitching on the card. I am also entering this into the Stamp Something Challenge which asks for bling.
So I have used a lined (textured) card from Blue Edge Crafts. Background paper is from a magazine. Sorry don't know which one as my Mum has passed it on. I machine stitched around the edge of the paper. The topper image I received in a image swap over at nice to finally put it to used. I coloured it with my aqua pen and watercolour pencils, and gold pen. The baubles I have decorated with bling and left over pieces from my gold stickers. The greeting is a Letraset rub on. I attached the image to SU Riding Hood Red and then attempted to machine stitch around the edge. I didn't realise until I had finished that the bobbin thread had run out about half way. Duh! So I unpicked what thread there was and used my gold pencil to turn this into faux stitching. :-)
Oops....forgot to mention. I was the lucky winner of Purple Sparkles chocolate wax melts. I soooooo can't wait to receive them as they look terrific.
