Festive Hollybobs

It's time for a new challenge at the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog, don't forget that our challenges are now Anything Goes with an optional theme. The DT will be following the theme and the theme for this challenge is Add Texture.

I have used a super image from the  the Work and Play 5 -  Festive Hollybobs collection available in the Polkadoodles Craft Store to create a Christmas card.


I merged one of the adorable Coloured Characters with a tree from the Embellies section to create my little scene - I printed it out several times to create some decoupage before adding lots of glitter.


I used one of the fabulous papers from the collection and added some corrugated card stock for my texture.  The sentiment is also from the collection and the twine is from my stash.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 376 - Anything Goes
Star Stampz Challenge - Add A Sentiment
Through the Purple Haze Challenge 106 - Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet Challenge 144 - Always Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Let's Go Wild!
Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Close To Nature

Make sure you pop over to the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Anything Goes challenge, you might like to join the DT and follow the optional Add Texture theme. If you need some more inspiration you might like to take a look at our Facebook page.

You're doing such a wonderful job with these images. This card looks very embellished at first sight, but actually there aren't that many, but the layers, colors, DP and corrugated paper and sentiment all work so well together. This is so, so sweet!
