Fabric, Fiber and Trim

Good morning dear bloggers! Hope you are all fine and well this Thursday morning.  As it is Thursday this sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Delightful Challenges!  This week the theme is:


so time to head over to your embellishment stash and use some up.  We would love to see your creations incorporating the above embellishments. Here is what I have done:

This little cutie is called Stocking Noah and is available from Digital Delights here.  He has been coloured with my Copics and I have added Flower Soft in Polar White to the trim on his hat and jacket and also the stocking top.  I added lots of Stickles to the heel and toe of the stocking.  I cut him out and put him on some foam squares to make him stand out more.  Behind him I have embossed some white pearl card with a snowflake embossing folder.  The striped paper is from my stash and I have mounted it on some red mirri card.  The lace was from Alessandra (thank you hun) and the red eyelash fibre trim is from my stash.  I made a poinsetta out of felt with my Marianne die and the pearls and gems are from my stash.

Our sponsor's this week are:

Scrapyland will be giving the lucky winner a $20 store gift card.  If you want some more inspiration please pop over to Delightful Challenge to see what the rest of the talented DT have designed.  Remember, you don't need to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love to see them on your projects and then you can enter twice if you use a Digital Delights image.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

 Simon Says Stamp - Bingo (Die cuts, free, glitter)

Thanks so much for looking today and take care xx
