The Best Christmas Gift

Hello Crafty Friends!

Just a quick post from me today sharing a card I made whilst playing with Uniko's Background Builders: Round In Circles stamps ...

I simply stamped and masked the circles turning them into baubles by adding a bow and strings in black and gold embossing. My ink pads were quite wet and the card is probably not the best for stamping on hence I lost a bit of the line detail in the stamp turning them into 'better' baubles. šŸ˜

I am entering my card at:
Craft Stamper Take It Make It December Challenge - Anything Goes

CAS Colours & Sketches #301 - Seasonal Colours, choose a 2018 colour combination and make it seasonal, I went for Challenge #262 - March 6, 2018 and used the closest colours I had in my stash
Uniko Challenge #50 - celebrate with optional twist gold , this time playing the optional twist with a bit of gold embossing. šŸ˜

Keeping it short and sweet again. Thanks for stopping by.

Have a lovely weekend!
