Christmas Wishes

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland, our theme for this week is Holly and/or Ivy, a nice easy one for you, any Christmas creation as long as you include some holly or ivy somewhere.

I have used a fabulous decoupage image from Jayne Nestorenko for my card and teamed it up with some papers from Echo Park.


I have used red card stock and embossed it with an Embossalicious holly embossing folder, the sentiment came with the image and I have added some ribbon and card candy from my stash.


This week we have two fabulous sponsors


A choice of 3 digi images for the winner

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

CHNC Challenge Extra for May - Anything Christmas
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Christmas Greenery
Christmas Card Challenge 24 - Embossing
Crimbo Crackers Challenge 64 - Festive Red
Use Your Stuff Challenge 135 - Ribbon

Make sure you pop over to the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Holy and/or Ivy challenge - don't forget it must be a Christmas card.

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
