I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Anything Goes Challenge at Holly Jolly

Thank you for stopping by.  My card today is for the Anything Goes Challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges.  Bugaboo is one of our sponsors and I have made my card with their Winter Bird Trio digital stamp. 

I had this pretty tree Christmas paper in my stash so I decided to colour my Christmas bird in non-traditional Christmas colours to coordinate with my paper. 

I also used a paper ribbon, jute, Diamond Glaze and a Christmas brad to complete my card. Hope you will join in this challenge.  Create a card, tag or Christmas project and enter it here.  Pop  over to the Holly Jolly blog and see the projects created by the rest of the design team.
