Saturday Slot

 Yay! One of my cards was picked as a winner over at CAS Colours & Sketches! Thanks so much, always a thrill to see my card pop up.

And now for their new challenge. A bit of a Christmassy colour selection and that suits me fine as I'm on a bit of a Christmas roll at the moment.

 And that's another card added to my Christmas stash.

I used a freebie magazine stamp for the wreath and heat embossed it in gold before adding a few red accents.  I then die cut it into shape.

Seems I went overboard with the diecuts on this card,  adding a square of vanilla textured card as a background and a tag for the sentiment. The last addition was my go to favourite - a twine threaded button.

Stamps: Penny Black, wonder collection; Uniko Studio, Background Builders Vines; SU, Good Greetings
Inks: SU, real red; Versamark
Embossing: Personal Impressions, mirror gold
Dies: Spellbinders, classic squares large & standard circles small; Clearly Besotted, Tag Along Die
Embellishments: Twine & button from my stash

Thanks for your time today. Be sure to enjoy your weekend.

  6. You did a fantastic job using the challenge colours and love how that sweet little wreath is the star. I love stamping alot but sometimes my cards seem to be all die-cuts too. There are so many good ones now days, its hard to stop buying them! Will keep my fingers crossed for you with the DT call and look forward to seeing your card for the new challenge.
