Addicted to Stamps and More #83

This week at Addicted to Stamps and More we have our Holiday Challenge. It can be a specific Holiday in the year or themed around a holiday such as a beach holiday or a skiing holiday.

This week we have Cathy as our Guest Designer. She has created a fabulous Holiday project for us this week, check it out here and also have a browse through her blog...I am sure you will be inspired.

I have made my first Christmas card this year for this challenge:


I based the layout on the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch and I was inspired to go with the white textured base and the pops of red when I saw the photo this week at Festive Friday. I am enjoying mixing up gems, enamel dots and sequins to give a less uniform look. I like the look but have pretty much run out of gems now so need to get ordering!

This week we are sponsored by SmartArt Designs who are offering our winner 5 free digis.

Don't forget to take visit our blog here to see what the rest of the DT have made to inspire you.
