♥ Christmas Greetings ♥

There are so many awesome challenge blogs out there! Today I am making a card for three of them. The first challenge is to make a card using the inspiration photo below from the Play Date Cafe. The second challenge was to make a Holiday card using a Christmas Tree or Ornament on it (I used a Christmas Tree Ornament), also a Die Cut, Ribbon, handmade embellishment and bling! That challenge is for the Papercraft Star challenge blog. And lastly, my last challenge is from the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog. And that is to make it Sparkle! I think I managed that!(Click on photos for a closer look)
The Christmas Tree is a wooden ornament that I painted white and then inked it in greens and some pale yellows, soaked it in glitter and then added some pearls and bakers twine to it. The paper is by Fancy Pants Designs, Lilac House and I also made a Die Cut Ornament to hang from the sparkly bow. The glitter strip is by K&Co.
Here is the PDCC56 inspiration photo:
Also, at the Play Date Cafe this week it is Player Appreciation Week! So many inspiration cards from the DT and some fab GDT. And there are some awesome prizes up for grabs too! Just look at what I won a couple of weeks ago during their Anniversary challenge! 5 packs of Cosmo Cricket chipboard alphas and 15, yes I said 15! Itty Bitty stamps from Unity Stamp Company! And let me tell you, they aren't that itty bitty! They are the perfect size! So check out these great challenge blogs for some wonderful challenges!!
Have a wonderful and fun weekend!

Hugs....

I love this card, and that little ornament to the side is just too cute! Love the wooden tree. So funny that I just read another blog where someone did the same challenge and it's amazing how different each card can be. Love it : )
