Happy New Year with My First Christmas Card for 2016 with New Challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge Blog

Happy New Year to Bloggie World and all of my favorite peeps!!!

It's a new month along with a New Year which means a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge Blog!!!!!!! Here's a challenge blog you are going to want to enter as she offers a once a month challenge the first of every month AND you can enter as many times you would want as long as you use a patterned paper!!!!!!! 

For my Design Team Project, it was a bit late as I had Shingles in various places including my eyes with blurring eyesight - not the most conducive to coloring images but I have completed and used Create with TLC Christmas Wreath and Bird Vintage which was from Create with TLC Winter Club.

  • Size A2 card using red Recollection cardstock with The Paper Studio Deck the Halls with chalk for the background
  • image was colored with Whisper Strokes and Prisma Colored Pencils and chalked around the edges after fussy cutting
  • Stickles berries along with Stickle accents on bow and wreath
  • Queen & Co red mini pearls for Holly Berries
  • plaid ribbon wrapped around the background and tied in a bow
  • silver JOY charm is from Miriam's Crafting Supplies
  • sentiment, "Love to make your memories bright, Peace to make your heart at rest Joy to make your holidays happy and wonderfully blessed", is from Create with TLC Winter Club is chalked around the edges and mounted on coordinating scraps with matching paper from the front and using Martha Stewart Holly Corner Punch with berries
