Simply Create Too Challenge 1 - Christmas

It's time for the first challenge at the new look Simply Create Too challenge blog! And its a lovely and easy theme for the next two weeks:

All About Christmas

So basically, anything Christmas goes! If you want more details and to see the rest of the Design Team creations, pop over to the challenge blog!

I've used this very sweet Angel Girl Nativity digi stamp from Jellypark (there is a 20% off sale on right now!!) and coloured her with Promarkers plus glitter glue. And I've made more than one card too!
I've used papers from Creativity by Crystal - Merry and Bright digi paper collection from Jessica Sprague - just two papers in each colourway - one mad bubbles and one plain and layered with the contrasting paper.

The sentiment stamp is a 99p Studio G acrylic stamp and I found some plastic star shaped clear beads in my stash and as I have loads of them, I used them on the cards as they looked quite Christmassy!
So that's another 6 cards off my total - very near my final goal!

Good luck with the Simply Create Too challenge and I hope you will join us! And as an extra special treat we are offering 3 sets of blog candy as prizes to the top three entrants as picked by the Design Team!
