Early Christmas with Creative Creations Challenges and Floppy Latte

Hey blogland

Im here today to share some real exciting news that i made the fabby DT over at Creative Creations Challenges

Im here for our fab Early Christmas Challenge and for this we are sponsored by the lovely Floppy Latte

The DT and myself were given some very 'christmas' images to work with, I cant say it was easy getting into the Christmas groove so early, it scared me to think about christmas! lol but it was fun taking on a new challenge. Go ahead and pop over to CCC for a chance to win Floppy Latte's $6 Voucher!

Heres my take on this challenge, using Floppy Latte's Holly Candle 

For this design i also used Floppy Latte's Winter digi paper pack, which took the hard work out of coordinating paper - which is fine by me! 
I coloured the image using my Promarkers and cut using my Portrait, along with the sentiment, i added some beads from The Ribbon Girl and a few paper flowers topped with a simple button

One of my fave elements of this is the embossed and inked PP, i ran through my texture boutique and then lightly used a sponge and my Tim Holtz distress ink to pick out the embossed parts - i really loved the effect!

I added some silver shimmer ink to the sentiment which looks lovely and shiny 

Hope you enjoy and go play along with this challenge for a chance to win - good luck!
