Jellypark Friends Christmas Challenge Reminder

Hey, everyone, this is my last post today! (I bet you're happy about that! Or not.) Anyway, we have a month-long challenge going on at Jellypark Friends. Due to the busy holiday season, we thought it best for just one challenge this month. And by the looks of it, you are happy we chose Christmas for our theme! Great to see so much participation! Thank you all for that!

Jellypark Friends had exciting news to share at the beginning of the month! We had some wonderful, creative people join our DT. Be sure to read the post from the November 29th to acquaint yourselves with these talented gals. I am looking forward to working with them starting in January!

Our winner for the month will receive 3 digis as their prize! And there are so many cute images to choose from. For my card I chose a darling Christmas tree from Claire's collection, as I definitely needed more Christmas cards to give out. (I am still woefully short. What's an old lady to do? Buy the rest? Bite your tongue!)

My DP is from the Bo Bunny Silver and Gold collection; it was distressed with my Zutter and paired with Stampin' Up and Bazzill CS. My image was printed on MICBC and then colored with Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:

G24, G28, TTBG51, E08, E09, Y23, Y26, TTBR104, C4, C5

I added some Wink of Stella Brush Clear to the stars and lights on the tree. Then pearl stickers were added for ornaments. A bit of ribbon and some die cuts finished my card. I used the following dies:

Cheery Lynn Merry Christmas
Cheery Lynn Snowflake Mesh Border
Cheery Lynn Holly Corner

If you haven't joined us yet this month, I do hope you get the chance to do so. I am looking forward to seeing more Christmas creations! I want to wish you all a very happy holiday season and a Merry Christmas. And have a great weekend!
