This is my inspiration card for this challenge...
Just a CAS little card this time.
I used a decoupage image I had in my stash. Perfect to send to a child.
I used a 5x7 base card, layered the front with a piece of red card cut slightly smaller than the card front. I placed the decoupage image in the centre, put a sentiment from the same decoupage sheet underneath and a small piece of holly in the top left corner.
And thats my DT card for this time.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.

Hello!!
Another week, another challenge at
The theme as always is

Loved the way this one turned out.
I cut out the bauble base card and two patterned paper layers on my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. I cut the base card out twice and glued together to make a firmer base.
I added the two patterned layers.
I die a star and small snowflakes from glitter card and a 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from matt blue mirri card.
Made a triple bow using a bow maker.
I slotted the paper border through the chipboard frame and glued them in place in the centre of the card. sat the Robin on the bottom of the frame.
I glued the small snowflakes in various places, the star at the top right and the sentiment on the left.
The handmade flower I put at the edge of the frame centre and the bow in the middle.
I tied a piece of gold elastic trim through the bauble holder.
Lastly I cut out a card stand with Cameo and glued to back of card.
