On the fourth day of December .......

it's challenge number 3

Happy Sunday .....

Yes it's challenge time ....... we're getting into the festive spirit again (oh no! so soon.  Still recovering from the Friday night party.  Only joking ...... we had a great night.  A few too many G&Ts maybe .... but hey! ...... it's Christmas!!!)

It's time for the Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge ..... Ho! Ho! Ho!

As always the challenge is sponsored by the Happy Little Stampers store


and the winner will receive a fab $15 discount voucher to spend on HLS goodies.


This theme this month is all about ........ the Wreath


I love a festive wreath on the front door .... it always looks so welcoming.

Here's a little inspiration for you ........ using one of my favourite combinations,  white on Kraft card ..... love it!!


I stamped the wreath in Versamark ink and then embossed with a white, fine detail powder.


I added a touch of colour using red and green sparkly gel pens ..... very festive ....... for some of the berries I used a white gel pen and then added more sparkle with some crystal glitter ......


The bow I stamped again and fussy cut before attaching with foam pads to add dimension


And I added some glossy accents to the large red berries to give a little shine


The sentiment is from the brand new HLS Christmas Joy set ....... again embossed in the white


And to finish off I softened around the edges of the card by brushing a touch of white ink, and added a few dots of 'snow' here and there using a white gel pen.

I'll be out this week, hunting for the perfect wreath for our front door .... have you got yours yet?

I'm also linking this up to the 12 Days of Christmas Cards Challenge with Kylie and Friends.


Hosted by the brains behind Happy Little Stampers .... the lovely Kylie and 12 talented friends are sharing Christmas cards for the next 12 days .... so if you still haven't made a start on making yours why not join in the fun.

Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy whats left of the weekend.

Cheerio until next time .....
