Use Kraft Cardstock on a card,  is the theme of this weeks Challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Please pop over and see what we have all been making and check out  the details.
Also a huge welcome to Amelia, who is joining us on the DT this week.

I used a Kraft card base then  layers of  Ideology  Kraft Resist papers.
All the    shading is Distress inks, Vintage photo, Festive berries and Evergreen bough.
The stamps used are by  Stampers Anonymous.

The baubles   were embossed using  Wow, embossing glitter powder,[ Halloween regular].
These were coloured with cosmic shimmer watercolours.
There is a lovely shimmer and sparkle  to them in real life, that doesn't show so well on the photo.
Twine and pearls for the finishing touches.

Other challenges entered-
Christmas Blog Challenge -WinterWonderland  the theme is 'Oh Baubles'.
Diva's By Design   Challenge 61  Anything Goes
The Stampman  November Challenge - Emboss It
