Stampin' Up Happy Christmas Mate can take on a different ID...

Hi All, Sorry I haven't been around lately.... Been doing a few other things & making stuff to take with me when I go to Japan at the beginning of October, 2011.
I decided to make a card using the Stampin' Up "Happy Christmas Mate" set, but change it a bit so it wasn't a Christmas looking card. I trimmed the candy cane off the Koala (the koala was holding a candy cane normally & also had a Christmas hat on), Found some striped adhesive paper that had the right width stripes to make the koala look like it's hold onto the stripe. I then shaded him with my Stampin' Up black writer pen using a blender pen... which makes a grey colour when using it this way. I used glitter gel pens to write the sentiment at the top. All this on a Stampin' Up Baja Breeze card stock for the base. This card is entered in the "Less is More" Challenge this week, being things that move.
