Merry Monday Challenge Week #83

Hello & Happy Monday!

Today Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper has a new challenge to help us get those Christmas cards made!

Here we go!

I loved this week's challenge although at first I did struggle a bit.
I just got this single stamp from Stampin Up called Wonderful Blessing and decided to emboss it with white embossing powder on Chocolate Chip cardstock. I cut it out with my Circle Nesties. I pulled out my Star of Wonder die from Memory Box and cut it out with some Champagne Glimmer Paper and placed over top the star in the image. I ran my Real Red cardstock thru the Cuttlebug with my Candy Cane Stripes EF then added some red baker's twine & a chocolate button.  My main image is popped up with Dimensionals and attached to my Real Red striped panel then adhered to my Neenah white card base. I love it and hope you do too!
