Christmas once again!

Hello everyone.

I hope you are enjoying the launch party this week of the new and fabulous collection from Polkadoodles!

Frosted Winter was an immediate hit with the Design Team - it really is a stunning collection.  You can see my posts HERE and HERE if you want to take a peak.

Today, however, is the second week of our "Use Something New to You" challenge over at Polkadoodles, lots of fabulous inspiration from the team for you to drool at :-)

My card was made by using up some left over printing from my sample makes in July.  I love that I already had all of the elements needed to make this card.

I have used the wonderful Studio 12 Picknix 3 - Nordic Winter Collection.

I love this robin and have used the pre-coloured image, and cut it out using my Silhouette Cameo.  I popped up the robin and top sentiment on this one - I think it will also be safe to post as it's not too thick.

For the inside I used the same papers as the front.  Inking all the edges of all the layers to help them pop.

I distressed the edges of the front, bottom layer and the red starry layer.  Curling over the two corners to add a little interest.

I think I need to redo my photo box, I think it's a little too big and therefore I'm getting lots of shadowing which I didn't get with my smaller one.  Something else to add to the to do list :-)

Your turn to make something and once again, the theme is Use Something New to You.  You have until Friday, 28 Aug to enter and it of course doesn't have to be Christmas!

I am entering this card in the following challenges

Crafting By Designs - Get Ready for Christams August Edition (entry #2)(closes 25 Aug)

Inky Impressions Challenges - Challenge #272: Christmas in August (entry #2)(closes 25 Aug)

Anyways, hope you are all well.

Thanks for stopping  by today.

Happy Crafting
