All the D's


I came across a new challenge blog this week called Design Dollies and I thought I'd give their sketch a go, as it was quite different and I do love seeing lots of different shapes on cards, so I've used their sketch and combined it with Doodle Palace's Challenge, which this week is Red & White Christmas Card (I was supposed to use a Digi stamp though - oops!) and also Die Cut Dreams, as their theme is Santa. I think this layout would have worked better in more colours, it was a bit of a challenge but I think I like the result - the jury's still out LOL!

Recipe:
Stamps - Stampin' Up! Sparkly & Bright; SU! In the Stars; Sentiment - Little Paper Shop
Cardstock; Whisper White; Real Red
Ink - Real Red
Ribbon - SU! ½" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (yummy & new)
Other - SU! Word Window Punch (told you I liked this!)
