Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

Hi there Crafty friends, a warm welcome to my old and new followers!! It's the weekend again, where are all the weeks going? Soon it will be Christmas, I know I really don't want to mention it lol but how apt that we have a new challenge started over at Creative Craft Cottage with the theme of 'Most wonderful time of the Year' and sponsoring us for the month is the fabulous Digi Doodle Studios.  I am using this wonderful image called Christmas Grace for my little bit of inspiration...
My Project

I placed vellum die cut poinsettias along ribbon border, adding glitter leaves and flourishes from same die set. Finishing with some gems...
