Christmas boy with lights (Bugaboo image)

Hi crafty friends,

I know it is unlike me to make clean and simple cards but when I have so many to create at Christmastime I find it a lot quicker :). I find Christmas cards more difficult in general and I'm not sure why, does anyone else? There are so many gorgeous Christmas images out there but when it comes to embellishing I get stuck! This gorgeous little boy is from  Bugaboo. I used some die cuts to give an optical illusion, I love using stripes.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - Anything Christmas goes
AllSorts - Clean and simple
Catch the Bug - Day 3 color challenge
