New Challenge blog - Crafty Addicts

Morning Everyone, well first of all, I had a lovely day yesterday celebrating my Silver Wedding Anniversary with my hubby and our boys.....Feeling blessed and happy!!!
Now on to this morning, this sees the start of another fab challenge blog, The Crafty Addicts. We have two fantastic sponsors this month, they are:-
Offering 3 digi images of your choice
also offering 3 digi images of your choice

So on to my DT inspiration...here I have used the sentiment image ''Joys of the season'' by Inky ImpressionsHere is my finished creation, this can be used as either a card or a wall decoration:- 

 First of all I die cut two layers of Spellbinders Grande decorative circles in gold and white card to make the base. I re-coloured the sentiment in gold and printed on to white card and cut out using circle die. I also cut out an X-Cut bauble die in gold card, trimming off the attached sentiment and layerd together with the image. I then die cut out Spellbinders Poinsettias in Papermania patterened vellum and gold card, Britania rose leaves, Spellbinders poinsettia leaves and Marianne pine branch in gold card. I arranged them all as above, finishing off with Paperamnia ribbon and brads. Here are more photos:-
