CSAYL - Put That Marker Down!!

I am officially on holidays for 11 days!!! I can't believe the term is finally over and I can relax and spend some time with my family without all the running around here, there and everywhere!! So the first challenge of my holidays is the CSAYL weekly challenge and this week its to put those markers down and watercolour your image instead.
This week's fabulous sponsor is In Style Stamps and the winner will be able to choose 4 digis of their choice.
I used Christmas Tree Chloe and watercoloured her on Stampin' Up watercolour paper. I then cut her out and popped her up on dimensionals on my die cut circle. I found some matching red fabric, so cut a square with my pinking shears and then machine stitched this to some Kraft cardstock. The patterned paper is from Kaisercraft's Christmas Carnival collection and this was sewn onto the red mat with linen thread, before adhering to the Kraft base. I used Pretty In Pink ribbon to cover the join and attached my tag to the bow with a spiral paperclip. The sentiment is from MFT's Presents For You set. I also added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the santa hat and suit.
On the inside the presents and sentiment were used from MFT Presents For You set and a strip of Christmas Carnival paper and a strip of Pretty In Pink card were added down the side.
The rest of the design team has some wonderful creations, so take a look over at the CSAYL blog and be sure to enter for your chance to win.
