Three Challenges & a Winner

This layout qualifies for three challenges.....


Firstly, the sketch over at SOUS www.stuckonusketches.blogspot.com by Aymee Gandy....



The challenge at Practical Scrappers www.practicalscrappers.com to use Die Cuts....

The scallop circle is cut on Cricut at 9" from Gypsy Wanderings with a smaller circle inside at 7.34" from George....

The Christmas is on its Way scalloped circles have been cut with Nestabilities....

And the challenge at Frosted Designs www.frosteddesigns.blogspot.com to do embossing....

The bauble decorations at top right and the Christmas is on its Way have been stamped using Inkadinkadoo, Papermania and Kaiser clear stamps, with Versamark stamp pad, embossed with American Crafts Zing EP and then heat embossed with a heat gun to give the lovely shimmering, metallic look...


Papers used are Delish Designs Mulberry Season and Gold Mirror card and the ribbon is from my stash....

The photo is DGD #1 from Christmas 2007....




And, the Winner is....
Well one of the three winners chosen from an entry field of 112, not including the Grand Winner....

The wee blinkie is on my sidebar....

The Practical Scrappers Patterned Paper Challenge....

This was my entry, and boy was I shocked when I noticed that my layout had been chosen as one of the top three, after the Grand Winner....

So, congratulations to the other three girls - WTG!!

I leave you on a high......

Hugs
