Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #9

Sunday again & time for another fab C4E Challenge. It is scary how time flies this close to Xmas. So many cards to make, so little time, LOL!! This week the challenge is to follow Michele's gorgeous sketch & include something that flies & a scalloped edge.

I changed my card shape to accommodate this one & made a gatefold card. The DPs are Basic Grey, Wassail. The tree is from the Egg & Nog plate by Squiggly Ink. I'm a sucker for gorgeous trees at Xmas. This one I stamped in crimson ink, embossed & distressed a little with Distress Inks. The baubles are Papermania adhesive stones. My birds are from Hero Arts & are so cute, I love them. I glimmer misted them for a little extra magic! The scalloped edge is done with a Martha Stewart Doily Punch.

Not much to tell you about the inside. The sentiment is from Anna Griffin. The swirly bits are from Imaginisce.
Now it's time to see the fabulous creations of my fellow DT collegues at the Crafts 4 Eternity blog. Michele is offering another lovely goody bag as a prize for this weeks winner. Hop on over & join us, we would love to see what you come up with.
Thanks for looking. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
