Scraps of Darkness & Punky Scraps ~ X-mas Morning

 Merry Christmas everyone!  This is Punky Scraps Challenge 36 for the month of December.  This cute little bear is supposed to help you get inspired with the Christmas mood.
This very cool sketch was designed by Natalie MacDonald.

As there is only one challenge we will incorporate all three of our monthly challenges into one!!

You have your picture above for the Christmas cheer, the sketch below for inspiration and the twist is to Get Picky using at least ONE of the following:
* corrugated cardboard*

Well comparing to Halloween, I obviously don't scrap Christmas los that much lol.  But with this Punky Scraps Challenge 36, it was easy enough to do, but in a funky way.  I found some not so great Christmas photos, that weren't really good for using on a single picture lo, but fabulous to cut apart to create a mosaic design with.   And these funky pics worked perfectly with my hippie/funky "Purple Haze", November kit, from Scraps of Darkness.  I did some bubble wrap stamping with gesso on my Bo Bunny Garden Girl, Basic Grey Indie Bloom and Glitz Dance in Sunshine papers, after layering them up.  I also painted those peace sign brads (main kit) black adding them on the borders for  more interest and funk.  The Christmas lights ribbon is a broken necklace from my junk stash.  These are my kids on Christmas morning in 2009.

 Those Tim Holtz stars came from my stash, which I misted and added some gesso and ink to.  The Magic tag (main kit) was misted and inked as well.
The smaller photos are of my Christmas tree and bows from opened presents.
