A NEW CHALLENGE FOR ME!!!!

Hee hee...there was NO WAY I was going to take on any more challenges till after Christmas BUT I just couldn't resist this one could I!!!  This one is frotnightly so I can manage that!

Who can resist having a go at the lovely banner idea over on Ready-Steady-Stamp that started this week?  Each time we will be given a 'recipe' and then nearer to Christmas we will make them up.  Here is the recipe...

and here is what I came up with.  The sun was pouring in the window when I took this so you can see all the detail...


I used BG Fruitcake layered up.  My fave scroll stamp was embossed with gold.  The angel is a stamp (not sure from where) which I watercoloured & glittered.  I stuck the gold stars around the scallopped circle.  Thank you so much for taking a look.  HUGS XXX

I can't resist this one either Karen! It has to be my absolute favourite as to use 5 ingredients is a real challenge and I find it helps my creativity.
Absolutely LOVE your banner. The image is gorgeous and your background is just beautiful.
