SSS186 And other challenges

Hi Bloggers! I made a Nutcracker Christmas card to share with you. Since I am using a Sweet and Sassy digital image I thought I'd use the sketch on the sister blog, the Sweet Stop for it. This is another card I started last week but didn't feel well enough to finish it. I added a feather to play in the Cuttlebug Spot challenge but missed it. Gotta have a feather in the Nutcracker's hat!
The paper is, of course, Graphic 45, Nutcracker Suite 8x8 line. I zigzag stitched around the squares and straight stitched around the center panel. He's colored with copics and gold flat back beads and twine were added. Links below.
