"For this weeks challenge we would like to see you get all festive with your creations and create something in the theme of Christmas, i am sure you are probably all making your Christmas creations already so this one should be an easy one for you and if you haven't started your Christmas creations then this challenge is perfect for you :)"
Sorry the picture is a bit dark.....I have new lighting in my craft room and so my camera flash isn't going off...need to take the pics under a different light I think!!!
For this card I used the lovely WASSAIL papers and layered them with a lovely stamp embossed with white. This really stands out on the papers. The card looks all browny and I like that its turned out different from the usual colours we have at Christmas. 3 red brads completed the look.

Thank you so much for looking...these are great little challenges using beautiful quality papers...go take a look! XXX
