Have you played yet?

Hi there! Just a quick reminder for you that our challenges at HLS are still open to enter. In fact, you have until the end of the month.

Here is my mid month inspiration for you -

I made this card for our Christmas Challenge which is

My sparkle was created by die cutting some ornaments from gold glitter paper and embossing in gold on the middle ornament.

The sentiment is from the Mixed Christmas Sentiment set from Happy Little Stampers.

I really struggled to photograph this card. The next photo was taken with the sun streaming through the window and straight onto the glitter.

I used a small hole punch at the top of the ornaments and combined gold and red embroidery thread to 'hang' them up. They are actually adhered to the card with foam squares.

The next card I made is for our CAS Challenge using Butterfly Birthday stamps.

I embossed the middle butterfly, created a mask out of a post it note and then stamped and embossed the second and third butterfly then the sentiment.

Using a wet brush and then my brushos, I laid down the colours.

I hope you will find the time to play along this month!

Thanks so much for looking xx
