Embellish It! & Win a Prize!

I am very excited to say that I am hosting a blog for the first time over at Papercraft Junkies! I got to choose the theme and will also pick the winners( which may be a problem, as those of you who know me are aware, decisions are not my strong point! I shall enlist the help of my talented and artist daughter, Bethany to help me!)

The theme that  I have chosen is, "Embellish It!"

You can choose any subject that you like but your project must have at least one embellishment and you have to make the embellishment yourself! (You can use punches, die cuttters, paper etc whatever you like to make your embellishment but there must be one embellishment on the card which was not bought!)

All the usual rules apply and you have until 09.59 am December 15th to get your entries in. We would be delighted to see any type of project provided it complies with the rules :)

There are prizes and badges on offer but the prize is BIGGER if you use a Papercraft Junkie  Digital stamp! 

I will also let you into a secret ... there are FREE digi stamps waiting for you in the PCJ online shop and there is also a SALE on, so I can't think better reasons to click HERE and fill up your shopping baskets!!

For my card I decided that I really wanted to work with the Layla digi stamp- I just love the attitude that girl has! I decided to colour her in with my copics using BV's and V's . I cut a black silhouette background of cogs and wheels using my Cameo. 

To fulfill the "Embellish It", part of the challenge I poured melted embossing powders into a silicone mould to create the button, in exactly the colour that I wanted, which I put on top of some recycled ribbon and a strip of netting.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE join in the challenge and give me something lovely to comment on!

Anyhoo here is my offering...

I would like to enter this for the GOTH V PRETTY Challenge at Delicious Doodles
Also the anything but Christmas Challenge at Fun With Shapes and More
