You crack us up

This is probably my favourite christmas card that I have made this year and of course it is the one that is hastily put together at the last moment ... in fact I had to make 2, one each for Neils nephew and niece who are both at that age of first what do we get them for christmas and then what kind of card do I make for them! - the ages of very early twenties!
I have just got this Jillibean Soup 'eggcellent' stamp set and wanted to give it a go and so I came up with a sort of non traditional christmas card that is a little cheeky yet funky for young adults!

I followed the sketch from Cupcake Crafts and I am also submitting it for Top Tip Tuesdays - anything christmas.
materials - White card, AC powder cardstock; Echo Park 'everybody loves christmas' papers; Jillibean Soup 'eggcellent' stamps, MFT christmas ornaments stamp set; Stazon black ink, Versa Color mint ink; Spellbinders labels 4 dies; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Heidi Swapp trim.
thanks for looking and I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year.
