Australian Christmas Card

If you've seen a flurry of Australian- themed Christmas cards in blogland lately, that could be due to the challenge we had at Happy Little Stampers retreat.

Friends...brace yourselves...this card didn't win the challenge. I know you're shocked. But the winning cards by Sue and Val were actually even better.

Undeterred, I'm entering this into some challenges.

The card was designed and cut from the Silhouette Cameo electronic die-cutter.  The globe (Miss Kate Cuttables) and sentiment are SVG files. I found the outline of a kangaroo on the internet, traced it, duplicated it and welded it to a santa sleigh silhouette, Sidney Opera House was also traced from an image in the public domain. I used an embossing folder to add texture to the base card.

I'd like to enter:

It should have won if you ask me! Santa with kangaroos... That's hilarious! This whole design is very inventive. You make magic with your Silhouette!
