Crafting Musketeers October Challenge

Hi Folks
Well we are halfway through the week so not long till the weekend.  Hope you are all having a good week, whatever you are up to.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Crafting Musketeers.  The theme for this month's challenge is:
Christmas in October
Our sponsor for this challenge is Bridlington Stationers who are offering a fab prize of a Limited Edition Autumn/Winter set of promarkers.  I am so jealous as I still need to get this set.

Here is a little bio about our sponsor.  
Bridlington Stationers is owned by Darren Saul.  Established in 1986, Bridlington Stationers Limited is a company brimming with experience.  We are a customer focused business supplies company delivering over 30,000 products available on a next day delivery basis on a local and national scale.
Our commitment to personal and friendly service ensures a high level of continuity.  We are here to advise, recommend and supply the office products that you need to assist in the smooth running of your business.  Our aim is to save you money, save you time and give you the opportunity to buy all your office needs from under one roof.

Here is my inspiration project

This is another card where I created the background using the Sizziz hexagon die.  After assembling the patchwork onto some sticky paper I die cut the shape and then added some faux stitching.  This was then mounted onto red coredinations and then onto my card blank which I cut myself from a grande die.  The sentiment is from Papermania.  For embellishments I added a poinsettia flower and a die cut snowflake.  I did add some glitter and frantage to the snowflake.  Some little gold gems in the corners finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.  Just pop over to Crafting Musketeers to upload your entry.  Don't forget to check out the fab creations from the rest of the design team too.

Love this Mags the the background you created from arranging various pattered papers cut into the die shape must have taken you ages but have been well worth it because looks sooooo effective you have done a fab job I love everything about your card.
