One Stitch at a Time Challenge 115

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our challenge is to be red, white and blue! You can make that a patriotic theme is your country's colours permit, or you can do something completely different (which is what I chose to do).

Our sponsor this week is the amazing Joanna Sheen, who's offering a £10 token to her shop.
This week, I chose an image from Stitchy's vast collection, called Catch Me.
And yes, it's my first Christmas Card of the year! I framed the image and added the sentiment in Photoshop Elements, the printed it on Ryman Ink Jet card, and coloured the image using Promarkers. The paper is from my stash - a magazine freebie from several years ago! I decided I liked the fairly simple lay out - so I didn't add further embellishment.

Hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine where anything goes,
Papertake Weekly where they want red, white, and blue,
Sweet Stamping where anything goes,
Penny's Papercrafty Challenge where anything goes,
Willow Sketchie where they want red, white, and blue,
Aud Sentiment where they want any sentiment,
ATCs and Cards with Attitude where anything goes,
Craft Your Days Away where they want red, white, and blue,
Crafty Mess where they want a Christmas card in non-traditional colours,
