Christmas Card Club Challenge #20 - Make It Round

Hi Crafters,

Pinch, Punch, First of the month!
Wow! How did we get here?
Well it's October 1st and a new challenge for our friendly Christmas Card Club and Valery's turn to choose a theme.


Precious Marieke Snowglobe Die
Precious Marieke Winter Fun Ornament Die
Tonic 'Merry Christmas' Die
Cottage Cutz Holly Leaves Die
Anna Marie Snowfall Acetate
Red Gems

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Aud Sentiments - #189 Use a 2 Word Sentiment
Winter Wonderland - ATG Christmas
Crafty Creations - #351 ATG

I haven't had a chance to play with these beautiful Christmas dies yet so this weeks theme gave me just that opportunity. I was going to create a shaker card, hence the acetate front but decided it would detract from the lovely wintry scene within, so I left it plain, hope you like it.

Please take a visit to the ladies blogs in this group (links in tab above) you will find some gorgeous makes there and plenty of inspiration for your own Christmas card making.

See you soon,

Your card itself is great. Good colour combo and design.

Those holly leaves pop off your card!

Have really missed seeing my teammates' lovely Christmas creations. This round beauty is just awesome. Love the sky blue and white colors frosty. I like the gleam of the blue pearl paper, and this looks like some very skillful inlay work. So pretty, and what a lovely snowglobe, perfect for the round challenge. The greenery just sets off your pretty scene. TFS & Hugs.
