Ummmmm, gone a bit off plan here!!

Good morning there blogworld,

The  new week sees a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies - the theme is 'Brown & Cream Christmas' and we are sponsored for this challenge by Floppy Lattes, with a great prize for the winner. The were very kind and allowed the DT to pick some images.

We also have some new Teamies who have made gorgeous cards - you should pop over and take a looksie!!

So, just to make this clear, you did know The Cutie Pies are all about cute and sweet images; that this week it's cream & brown Christmas; teamies have made wonderfully cute cards?

Now, bear that in mind when you look at my card and you might think I've gone a little off piste here!!

So this is my card:

Hmmm, at least it's cream & brown!  I will say no more. Nope, not a thing, zip, nada, nothing, zilch, not a word really.

I used:

Digi image:
highlighted with a touch of Stickles
Sentiment - Wild Rose Studio

Dies / Punches:
Nestie labels
Martha Stewart for the zig-zag

From a Christmas paper pad - not sure, blocked out which one!

Anything else?
bit of twine and a kraft star
and everything has been Distress Inked to death.

Off now to wonder how on earth I made it onto the DT!
