Anything But a Card Monday

It's Monday and over at Catch the Bug that means we've got some "Anything but a card" inspiration for you.

I used one of Jodie's sheep images to decorate a box of macthes. The wool is made with a snow pen and I've used Promarkers for the coloring.
Papers are Maja Design scraps. There's not much space to decorate but I die cut an oval frame, added a little piece of ribbon and pearls. 

This was tricky to photograph as I wanted you to see that it is in fact a matchbox, hence the odd angle and poor quality of the phtoto.

This is also for these challenges:
1) Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - Something die cut or punched
2) Creative Corner - Anything Goes
3) Crafty Ribbons - #119 Animals
4) Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything Christmas Goes
5) Top Tip Tuesday - Animals

Oh this is SO sweet Pia… I love the cute sheep and his woolly coat looks really fab! I like how you've decorated it… such a great idea to use the matchbox… I must save some of ours and decorate them, as they are good to keep embellies in.
hope you're having a good weekend!
Big hugs, Sue B xx

Since I'm rubbish at 'projects', I certainly admire this tiny work of cute art you've done for your project. Awesome idea to decorate a matchbox, and it's cute as can be. That is one tiny oval with a tiny, tiny adorable silly Christmas sheep. Fun & festive, and love the texture look on his wooly little self. Liked the border treatment and shiny pearls too. TFS & Hugs
