Made it Monday - Yep - you guessed it - Christmas :-)

Hello and Happy Monday everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Today, yep, today I show you another Christmas creation.  We are having fun and games over in the Polkadoodles Facebook Group right through till the end of October.  Today's game is to make a card following this sketch posted by teamie Alysha.

Here's my card using the sketch and the wonderful Festive Christmas Collection.

I have also used the wonderful new Craft Dies from Polkadoodles.  I have used the Super Sprigs and the Flowers 2 dies to add those flowers to my card.  Printed off some papers from the collection and cut them out with my Big Shot.

Super Sprigs - Craft Cutting die

Flowers 2 - Craft cutting die

I couldn't resist adding some glitter to the flower centres and the leaves.

For the inside, I merged all my layers using the Silhouette Design Studio, and just printed out the one piece.  I designed the scalloped edge circle in Design Studio, using this great tutorial from Silhouette School.

The sentiment and little hearts are also in this wonderful collection.  That background paper with the trees, has to be my all time favourite - can't stop using it :-)

Wish you could see the sparkle a little more.  I placed the red layer up on some foam tape, to add a little more dimension.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
