Holly Wreath

It's time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and the theme for the next fortnight is Christmas chosen by Susan.

I have used a fabulous image and papers from the Ooh La La Creations The Shawn Jenkins Collection CD to make my card.

My Pyramid Decoupage image and papers are from the collection called Holly Wreath.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat printed onto the backing paper and cut out with my Die-namics Fishtail Flag dies. The seam binding bow is the same colour as the card stock in real life - I don't quite know why my camera decided to change the colour!

I added a button and some twine from my stash along with some small red gems.

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

That Craft Place Challenge - Anything Goes
CHNC Challenge 204 -  'Getting ready for Christmas'
Kraftyhands November Challenge - Christmas Cheer
Crafty Catz Challenge 256 - Winter Theme
Crafty Calendar November Challenge - It's All About Christmas
Aud Sentiments Challenge 120 - Use a Sentiment for any December Holiday
A Creative Romance Challenge - Something Old (ribbon, button, twine, gems)

Make sure you pop over to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Christmas challenge.

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
