Blogger's Challenge Week #11


I must be in a Christmas Holiday mood. I've been designing Holiday cards for my World Card Day Events (check out my Stampin' Up! Calendar later today for details)and then decided to use the fun Dashing paper for my Challenge card this week. Our Blogger's Challenge was to use the card sketch on page 12 of the Holiday mini. I decided to use my Three for You punch again to make a wreath as my focal point on the card. The rhinestone brads add a little bling, along with the berries that I punched from red Faux Diamond dust paper. The Dashing paper is probably wilder than I would normally use for these backgrounds, but I had those pieces and went for it! This card came together really quickly...with NO stamping! Paper and punches...that's it! I debated whether or not to put words in the center of the wreath...what do you think?

Check out the rest of the Blogger's this week and how they interpreted the challenge sketch. I'm sure they will have lots of creative ideas!
