New month - new challenge

November is here and with it brings a new Challenge and theme over at SCD! So, this month the Challenge is to create Christmas cards! but, with a difference, well what else did you expect?? lolxx - the theme is to include a topic and a colour scheme - so, watch out for some very different ideas!

To start the ball rolling we have the very talented Dawns selection....she has chosen:-

Holly and the Ivy - using the colours green, red and gold!

Here's my card...

the all papers are basic grey wassail. The Tim Holtz "Noel" stamp was stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder and then distress inks in fired red and shabby shutters rubbed over creating a resist effect - this was then spritzed with radiant rain gold shimmer - matted onto gold and then matted onto a piece of card which had been punched with a snowflake punch! The holly leaves are another Tim Holtz stamp and have been stamped onto coloured card and hi-lighted - ribbon and bling added!

This month we also have Pia joining us as GD - do pop on over to her blog for some fab inspiration!

Pop on over to the SCD blog and see what the rest of the team have created!
