No Squares Allowed at Kraftyhands

Hi Folks
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  I was working yesterday so a short weekend for me but going to make the most of my day off today.  I have finally finished all my christmas cards apart from a couple of special ones.  Just got to write them all now, not a task I look forward to.

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Kraftyhands.  Our theme for this month is:
Christmas But No Squares Allowed
So bring out all those shaped cards and creations.  Let your imagination go wild.

Here is my inspiration project using toppers and papers from the Holly and Snowflake collection available from Kraftyhands.

I went for a circular easel card.  I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out the card base using kraft card.  I mounted the topper onto some red card and then kraft card.  I cut out the stars and added some glitter to them for added sparkle.  The ribbon was from my stash and has a bit of sparkle to it.  

Thanks for popping by and just pop over to the Kraftyhands Challenge blog for full challenge details.
Don't forget to check out the beautiful creations from my talented teamies.
