Blessings of the Season


Hello and welcome to my little corner of blog land, delighted to have you here!  Today I have another card I made for the new release at Beccy's Place this time using the new set Blessings of the Season which is available here.



I decided not to use any Design Papers with it but embossed the red mirri card with an Embossalicious holly embossing folder.  The image has been coloured with Copics and I added some Glossy Accents to the berries.  I used Dienamics mini Scallop border die for the small border.  The bow is a Sue Wilson die and the holly leaves and berries are C C Designs.  Here is a side view:


Challenges I would like to enter:

Christmas Card Challenge - Optional Colour Challenge which I have not done
Pile It On - Use Two or More Diecuts
Scribble and Scrap - Anything Goes
Crafting at the Weekend - Anything Goes
We Do Doobadoo - Christmas
Delicious Doodles - Christmas in October
C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas

A quiet day for me after my swimming I will just be crafting! I feel so tired after the last few weeks of festivities I need to recharge my batteries!  I am going to see Gone Girl or is it Girl Gone tonight with my sister which I think is an 18 certificate, I don't usually see anything over a 12!!!

Thank you so much for looking today and the lovely comments you leave -

This is gorgeous Susan, I love the red and green combination and your fabulous die cut details - especially the fabulous bow.
I bought the Spellbinders Regal Frame from Create & Craft (I hardly ever buy from them but couldn't resist) I think it is exclusive to them for about a month.
