The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #26

Hi, guys! It seems a little odd to be thinking of Christmas just after Easter, but we have a new Challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge where the theme is always Anything Goes.

We have a new member of the Design Team, Renate who is from The Netherlands. Check out her blog, her cards are gorgeous!

I have recently been looking over my embossing folders, and found a Sizzix Woodgrain design that goes perfectly with a woodgrain star stamp which came in a kit last year from Love From Lizi.

The star and the sentiment came with the kit, I embossed them both in gold. The blue banner is a snippet from my paper stash. The embossed background is a snippet of antique gold pearl card. I added some bakers' twine and then went around the border with a Distress Marker - I used Gathered Twigs, which is a wee bit too dark, but never mind!!

Do go and see my teamies' lovely creations and be inspired to make something Christmassy - it doesn't have to be a card!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Love you have added a wood embossing folder to the star, it makes it all very organic, I love it.
