Get Creative Challenges # 5

Good morning to anybody who has actually dropped by.  I hope you have all been enjoying the festive break with your family and friends.  This post is scheduled, because my plan has been not to go onto the blog until the New Year. At the time of typing this I'm not sure whether I will have been able to stick to that ... lol!

Today's challenge at  Get Creative Challenges  is to use a bow, 2 patterned papers and 3 brads/buttons.  My image is Eleanor and Pickles  "Decking The Halls" which you can find HERE at our sponsor Lacy Sunshine.

My Card


Papers - LOTV Snow Princess
Holly Vine die - Memory Box
Holly Corner die - Cheery Lyn
Pearls - Hobby House
Tiny brads and ribbon for bow - from stash
Sentiment - Computer generated.

I had originally planned to use some small red buttons as the holly berries but turns out they were not samll enough.   I found some very tiny brads in my stash but they were not the right colour so I used nail polish to colour them.  As I had already stuck down the holly corner I had to remove the legs from the brads and then stick them down. Nice and easy to put together and this is my first Christmas card for 2015 !!!

Please pop across to the blog to see what my teamies have created and we would love it if you decided to join us.  You have the chance to win three digis of your choice from Lacy Sunshine - you'll be spoilt for choice I can assure you.
