Favourite Embellishments

Hi Folks
Well, Christmas and New Year is all done and dusted and it's back to normal for me now.  Just got to take the tree down at the weekend.  I have had a fab time with family and friends.  Hope you all have too.

Today sees the start of the first challenge of 2013 over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this challenge is:
Use your favourite embellishments  
I am sure that we all have certain items that we use time and again on our creations.  So just get them out, make a creation and pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges and enter the challenge.

We have two fab sponsors for the challenge who are both offering a great prize to our winners.

Bugaboo Stamps - 7 digi images of the winners choice
The Poodles Doodles - 7 digi images of the winners choice

The design team used images from our sponsors for their creations.  I used a super Bugaboo image and here is what I created.

Recipe: Bugaboo image coloured with promarkers, glamour dust added to the word happy and glossy accents added to the balloons.  Papermania papers matted onto coredinations cardstock.  Paper flower with a gem for the centre.  Organza ribbon with a purple heart shaped button added.
My favourite things used on this card were ribbon, flowers, glamour dust and gems.

For more inspiration just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges and see what the other talented design team members have created.

Thanks for popping by and I am looking forward to seeing all your entries.
