Crimbo Crackers Challenge 133 - Anything Goes

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme for the fortnight is:

Anything Goes

I've used a kraft card blank as my base and used the negative from the Tim Holtz die, layering the embellishments on the top.  I made the holly leaves and the bow plus the mittens from my own template and this was a personalised card for parents who loved dogs and golf - hence the charms!

The red berries were recycled from some cracker embellishments from a few years ago and everything else was from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge:

I'd like to enter the following:

  2. Ruth, these mittens are so cute! Personalising them with the doggie bowl charm and golf club with ball charm really adds a personal touch and helps to balance that cute jingle bell.
