a present for you

Good morning girls
We've a challenge and a half for you over on Karen's Doodles this morning!!! Are you ready for this? Nancy has certainly chosen a theme that'll either kill or cure you lol

BLACK & WHITE CHRISTMAS
you may use some other colours on your image


I so struggled with this theme until we were told we could use some other colours on our images but I tried to stick to the theme as far as possible hence a blackish Bigsby with his gift.
I started by cutting the bauble at 4" with my cricut, then I sized the image to fit in the centre. Once I'd coloured Bigsby with my copics I decided to paper piece the present, so there are two extra layers on that which gives it a nice dimension. I layered a piece of white pearlised card which I'd run through my cuttlebug onto some black card popped the bauble on top. Oh and a couple of wee brads and a bit of bling to finish off.
So who's game? I'll look forward to seeing what you come up with for this one
