PapercraftJunkies #5

Welcome to my second challenge post of today and to PapercraftJunkies challenge #5. The lovely Denyse is hosting this fortnight's challenge and the theme she has chosen is "Embellish it". That means your crafty project can be any theme but it has to have at least one handmade embellishment on it. There are fabulous digi prizes and badges up for grabs for the lucky winners, and a bigger prize if you use a PapercraftJunkies digi on your project. There are lots of fabulous digi images in the PapercraftJunkies shop where there is a terrific sale on at the moment and even a freebie section.

I got the inspiration for my DT card from the beautiful Doodle Christmas Tree digi that Tracey designed. I love the scrolls that the tree is made from and wanted to create a similar effect from wire. You get a ready coloured digi and a black and white outline digi for this image making it super value.

I used a 6" x 6" card blank and covered it with gold mirri matted with a red Papermania textured card. I printed the coloured tree digi onto green card and matted it onto gold mirri. I used a white pen to add highlights to the scrolls and decorated the tree with some red and green gems.

To create my embellishments I used some gold wire and red and green beads from my stash. I wound the wire around my Papermania bow maker, threading it with the beads at intervals. I tucked the ends of the wire embellishments behind the sentiment and secured with Pinflair. I finished the card with some more red and green gems in the top corners.

Head on over to the PapercraftJunkies challenge blog for more inspiration from the other DT members and a full breakdown of the prizes and rules. You have until 9:59 am on December 15th to enter your crafty creations, we can't wait to see what you make.
