Christmas (with a difference!)

Good morning all,
I hope this post finds you well.  I am here to share with you my DT card for this week's fab challenge at Charisma Cardz.
The theme this week in CHRISTMAS.
There are two fabulous sponsors.
Simon Says Stamp are offering one lucky winner a voucher for $20....how fab is that?
Pink Cat Studio are offering one lucky winner 5 digis of your choice.....fantastic!
Please pop over to Charisma Cardz and you can view the gorgeous projects from my DT teamies.  They really are stunning.  It would be great if you could join in with our challenge this week.  I look forward to seeing your creations.
Onto my card.... Well i needed a card for my little man to give to his teacher for Christmas.  I wanted a card that sort of said ''thank you teacher'' because my little man thinks she is fab but i also wanted it to be Christmassy too. I think i achieved what i wanted! Different, i know! ;)
