Another Christmas Card Challenge!!

Hi there everyone! I am back again to share with you a card for a challenge over at Nonni's blog

You may already now about the first challenge - Stamp a Merry Christmas. It is still going right up until the 24th December.

This challenge has Nonni asking us to use our Scraps or old stash to create a Christmas Card.

The card that I have made was made completely from scraps - except for the card base!!

Here is my card -

You can see how easy it would be to make something like this entirely out of scraps!! Can you see my tiny berries? They were cut from scraps of red glitter paper.

This is my first card that I used my new Impression Obsession dies for (you may have seen my second card that I blogged a few days ago). I have only been able to show you now, though. 

Lots of fiddling again with all these little pieces but the end result is so fun.

So, pop on over to Nonni's blog to join in the fun!! She has two challenges now that will be running up until the 24th December and there are also prizes to be won!

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges -

Stampin' Royalty - Anything Goes (my second card)

(This is also my second card at Inkspirational)

Update! Thanks to my good friend, Loll, I will be entering my card into this challenge too!
