Thank you for joining us for the Christmas Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is


We are showcasing Altenew Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

To be honest I think my card maybe a bit too busy but I wanted to show case Altenew Lacy Scrolls stamps.
First I had to cut the paper with the Simon Says Stamp Stitch Wavy Stitched Border then I masked it off so I could stamp up to the faux stitching.
Everything had been stamp as the second impress, I found the inkpad I was using was bit inky and it was bit dark.
To make the gold background I used the Brilliance Galaxy Gold inkpad and randomly stamped.
I then used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to make my frame and added the Simon Says Stamps Thinking of you which I cut out of gold card.
Having realised that I needed another flower and leaves I stamped and cut them out, wish I worked out I was going to do that apparently they have matching dies.

I made another simpler but less stamping and used the Simon Says Stamps Diamonds stencil and lightly went over it with some ink even now I think I could have just left it white. I also stamped the verse from Its your Birthday from Simon Says Stamp.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
