FFC41 - Merry Christmas

Link up to Bev's birthday party here.


I'm back with my card for the next Festive Friday challenge. I've noticed that the number of entries for each challenge is increasing proportionately to the proximity of Christmas! Coincidence? I think not! :-)

Here's our inspiration for this challenge:


I focused on the colours and the wreath. I used the new Stampin' Up Wondrous Wreath that everyone seems to have (and why not - it's graphic and classic and so versatile!) I used a red copic tip to create my little berries.  I used silver embossing for my Kaisercraft sentiment to represent the skate blades.

Now it's your turn. In addition to our regular DT members, we've got a Guest Designer for this challenge and you're going to love her interpretation!

This challenge will run until midnight on Wednesday October 8.

The white panel on the brown background DP nicely attracts the eye. Your wreath and berries pop. Your design is flawless as always.

Thought that I was at the wrong blog for a minute there...the patterned paper threw me off! Great call cuz it is the perfect interpretation of the photo! Love the 'skate blade' embossed sentiment. I'm e-mailing my SU lady asap to order that gorgeous wreath!

Lovely take on the inspiration, Ardyth ... the bold green and red wreath is fabulous! Don't have that wreath ... or any SU goodies (there, I've admitted it!) ... wonder if I'm the only one! Anita :)

I have no idea what you stamped that wreath in but talk about good coverage! I love your off center design with the texture background. Beautiful!!

This is so beautiful and I love the deep green ink you used, so pretty with the red berries.
