New Challenge at the Divas

Hello blogworld,

Posting two days running, eh!  How good am I!  I promise I won't be turning it into a habit - I don't think anyone could stand that level of waffling!!!

So the reason for the post is that it's a new challenge over at Divas by Design - we are up to number 17 now and the theme is Merry Christmas.  Our two wonderful sponsors this time are:
I'm sure I don't need to encourage anyone to be making Christmas cards.  I would imagine nearly everyone is snowed under with them!  Also the challenge runs for 4 weeks this time - plenty of time to nip over and join in.

I know my team mates have created some wonderful creations to inspire you and here is my contribution:

As you can see I went for a simple design - but that is because I was making batches of cards to send out.  I did this one and another two designs.  This one I thought was the more elegant of them!

So I used:

Inkadinkado Dot Flourishes set - I picked one of the larger flourishes stamped it on its side and then overstamped a bauble image (I've no idea whose it is - I've had it for years!).  Coloured it in with my Promarkers added a Wild Rose Studio sentiment, a couple of gems and - hey presto - 15 cards later I was done!

It's been very hectic over at the Divas this challenge - Anything Goes is obviously a very popular theme, we've had hundreds of entries!  I've really enjoyed wandering around all your blogs and admiring your work.

Look forward to seeing you there!
