Hi all,

I am back today with another card. I am trying to get a jump start on my Christmas cards so that I am not waiting till the last minute to get them done. My card today is not traditional Christmas! I wanted something a bit different than the norm. I was able to use my spellbinders dies and I really like them. These are something that is very new to me, so I am just getting the hang of them. The recipe over at Meljen's Challenge is to use a button and bow…simple enough right. Pop over and check it out you still have time to play and they do freebies every Monday.

Supplies Used:

Cardstock:  PaperTrey Ink Card Stock
Designer Paper:  
Glitter Paper from Peachy Keen Stamps
Ink:  Memento ink, Copics
Crinkle Ribbon, Pearls, Button, Liquid Appliqué, Spellbinders
Stamp Set: PaperTrey Ink, MelJen's Design

 This card is entered into the following challenge;

I hope that enjoyed my project today and make sure that you pop over and see what ever one else has made and enter into the challenge.

 Crafty Hugs,



Well done! A very nice card. Thanks for joining us at Christmas Inspirations challenges.
