Crafts Galore Encore December 2016

The first of the month means it's the start of a new challenge on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog
Thank you to everyone who joined in with November's challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog's 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.

Our theme this month is the popular
"Anything Goes"
and our sponsor is
Sherri Baldy
The prize will be the three fabulous images that the DT have used.

As it's nearly Christmas I thought I'd better make a Christmas card.

This card will fit in an 8"x 8" (20 x 20 cm) envelope. The base panel is covered with a plain paper from my stash. The spotty papers are from The Paper Studio. All panels have been matted onto green card.

This gorgeous image is IMG 924 and I coloured her with my Copics. I cut her out using an X-cut scalloped oval die and edged it with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I fussy cut the poinsettias from some old First Noel paper from Papermania and layered a couple of them up. The vintage style lace is from my stash. I added some fibres for a bit of texture. The words were also cut from the First Noel paper.
Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the wonderful projects and cards created by the rest of the talented team and to enter your "Anything Goes" creations.
As this is our last challenge for 2016 I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

I've entered this project into the following challenges:
