Jolly Bling-a-ling Buttons

No, Jolly Bling-a-ling Buttons isn't some new age festive greeting; it's the names of these three little fellows who are the Sweet November digis in review at All That Scraps right now.
There's loads on review, check out the rest of the DT inspiration at the All That Scraps Blog, ca-ute!
I coloured with Copics and added Diamond Stickles to the star, I didn't think it needed much bling on the image with all that glitter on the cardstock I matted with, lol.  Bearly Mine Challenges theme this time is One for the Boyz so I'm entering there. eta: New rule, 2 entries only (this was my third, per the "old" rule) so I'm NOT entering there :-(  
I used the sketch from last week's Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, isn't it a good one?!  Of course I missed the deadline (it's what I do!)  Their challenge for this week is Punch It, so at least I can still enter, having used my Standard Circles Nestabilities for the sentiment -  phew!
The papers are from Kaisercrafts 'Tis The Season pad, with the background paper from a budget pack I bought for scrapbooking before I ever made a card.  
I got the sentiment as a freebie, but even though I usually note where they come from, in this case I haven't; so if it's "yours" let me know and I'll credit you :-)  It's a digi (you probably would have guessed that, wouldn't you?) I added the red and green with Copics, but next time I might anticipate that there's going to be red and green on the sentiment and colour it before printing, at least I won't go out of the lines that way!  Some Stickles around the outside edge helped to tone the green down to more similar to the mat cardstock.
Totally Gorjuss has a Christmas theme this week, as does Papertake Weekly and Digital Tuesday has Anything Goes so I'll be entering those challenges.
The inside of the card, as usual, just uses papers from the front.  I stamped....yes, with a real WOOD MOUNTED rubber stamp....the sentiment using Forest Green Stazon ink.  
Well that's it for today, I have some more of the fabby Sweet November images to show you in the next day or so, and there's the rest of the DT's fab work to see too over at the All That Scraps blog too.  At the end of the week we'll be back with even more Sweet Novembers and some Sugarplums, all kind of thematic isn't it: November being the month and visions of Sugarplums dancing in our heads?!
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Dee4Donna
