Merry & Bright--The Challenge #52

November 23, 2015

It's Monday and time for a new challenge at The Challenge!
This week we have a gorgeous inspiration photo for you to use.  We can't wait to see all of your beautiful projects!

1. Use the challenge to create a card or paper project.
2. Please add the challenge photo to your post (copy and paste).
3. Have fun and comment on the submissions of others.
4. Anything that is offensive to myself or to my viewers will be removed.
5. Have fun.

My base card is a white square.  (5 X 5)  The next layer is Garden Green (4 3/4 X 4 3/4)  The top layer is red and white polka dots (found in my stash) cut with Simon Says Stamp Square Stitched dies.  The green holly rectangle is cut using the  Simon Says Stamp Stitched rectangle dies using Doddlebug Designs SugarPlum Paper Pack.  The banners are created using the stitched rectangle fish tale banner dies by My Favorite Things.  The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' UP! stamp set (Good Greetings).  I stamped it with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with Zing Rouge embossing powder.  

I used the Reverse Confetti-Layered Snowflake Die to create the snowflake.  The base is white and the green is from the Doddlebug Sugarplum paper pack.  Real Red and Garden Green are used in the layers.  I created a white twine bow and added one of the enamel dots on top of the bow.  More green enamel dots were added for fun.
