Seize the Birthday Challenge - Anything goes

Happy New Year!  

Welcome to the final sketch for 2015 over at Seize the Birthday!
Thanks to everyone who played last time!

I used some simple masking to create my card this week using some cute new images from My Favorite Things. I started with the Moose, and then masked him off before stamping the rug and cushions.

Just Add Ink Challenge #294 - Just Add A Gift Card

Well, I am certainly more than a little bit late posting this! I thought I had scheduled it but clearly I hadn't. And with Christmas festivities and house guests I haven't been online much to notice I had even missed it!

Our latest challenge over at Just Add Ink is to add a gift card and I used a simple three fold card design for my project.

Because of the holidays, this challenge will last for TWO WEEKS and whilst there will be no judging by the Design Team, we ask you to share your gift card holders so that we can all enjoy your lovely creations.

I also made a couple of other smaller personalised gift card holders for my nephews, but unfortunately only  managed to get a photo with my phone so the quality is poor. But you get the idea :)

But today I have some quick and easy Christmas card ideas featuring some gorgeous embellishments available now over at The Scrapbook Store.
