Another card for the Christmas box :o)

Hi folks!
I wanted to join in with the fab November challenge over on the Joanna Sheen forum and thought I'd better get my skates on as we're heading towards the end of the month fast.
The challenge is to 'make a card using a magazine in some way. This can be simply using a free backing paper, a picture, torn paper or even making a tiny magazine to place on your card' I have used the fantastic free CDrom that came with this months Complete Cardmaking magazine and printed the patterned papers onto Linen cardstock.
I have also used my Square and Scalloped Square Nestabilities cutting a green square from my DCWV glitter stack. I then stamped a Magnolia snowflake and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. The cute character is Messy Rabbit and I have coloured him with Copic markers. The pink dots at the top are from Craftwork cards and I cut the sentiment from Funky Foam using my Cuttlebug and 'Lingfield' Go Kreate alphabet die.
I followed the sketch on Friday Sketchers which this week has been designed by my good friend Jeanette; Magnolia Down Under would like to see a Christmas card or Decoration; A Spoon Full of Sugar has a theme of Christmas cards made for babies or pre-schoolers.
That's another card for the Christmas box :o)
Ciao for now!

This is gorgeous, Sandra. I love your messy rabbit in the Christmas sweater. The way you use your Nesties is so inspiring. I must use mine more, I love them but the inspiration gets stuck sometimes.
