Guest Designer for Sparkles Christmas Card Challenge - Include a Photo


Today is my last card as a guest at Sparkles Christmas Card Challenges! This week we want to see you incorporate a photo on your card.
Mine is a very silly photo of my husband and my uncle from last Christmas. We went home to England for Christmas and my Mum bought them matching cardigan/jackets and so we had to take a funny photo for posterity!

Challenges:
AI Factory - Anything Goes
Digi Doodles Shop - Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Crop Stop - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Papertake Weekly - Die Cuts
Tuesday Throwdown - Dimension and Texture
Crafts 4 Eternity - Christmas
Winter Wonderland - Trim a Tree



Card Recipe:
Paper - DCWV Handmade Christmas
Tree - Crafts Too Embossing Folder
Glitter - Stickles
Die Cuts - Spellbinders
Bows - Walmart



I embossed the green paper with the tree folder and then I cut it out.
I added Stickles in Gold, Green and Red to the areas on it to dress it up!
This card just makes me smile and I hope it makes you do too!
I've really this month as a guest at Sparkles Christmas Card Challenges and I now have 4 cards ready for Christmas!
Please come on over and link your card, remember the theme is always optional, we just want to help you make your Christmas cards!
