It's a 'FIRST'

Seasons Greetings Challenge Blog
Welcome to the 'Very First' Season's Greetings
Anything Goes Christmas Challenge.
This is a 'LONG POST'
I got caught out badly last year with my Christmas card making
so decided to 'try' and remedy that by starting them earlier.
Well it so happens that there was a 'Design Team Call'
for a new Christmas Challenge and I thought
what a great opportunity it would be to apply.
I was fortunate in being chosen as one of the 'Designers'
There are 2 Teams named  in true Aussie Style
as it is based in my home state of Queensland Australia
Team Kangaroo - I am on this one
Team Koala joining in Challenge #2 in two weeks time.
So here goes -
Check it all out HERE
Here is the card I made for your Inspiration

I started off with my base of kraft card stock
and then went on to add some layers.
The white background has been cut with a
stitched die and as I didn't have a big
'LOVE' stamp with Christmas on it
I made a computer generated one.
Added some scoring and a few pearls.
For my focal image I got out my
 Spellbinders Poinsettia die cutting several
with white card stock. While they were still in the die
I inked them with Clear Wink of Stella.
 I then made my backing with white and gold paper.
Added some Christmas Ribbons from my stash
and leaves from Tim Holtz Mini Holiday Greens.
Finished with another pearl on my flower.

You can see the shimmer from the wos
Hope you will pop over to our Blog 
 and check out what my Team Mates (Aussie Saying)
have made. Love to see you join in and kick start
those Christmas cards early.
Thanks for popping in today.
