Crafty Calendar 'All Things Christmas' & My Time To Craft 'Quilt It' Challenge.

Good morning all, brrr it has turned really cold and rainy here I hope it is better where you are.

Today see's the start of 2 new challenges and because I am still not up to speed with my crafting I joined them together. At Crafty Calendar Challenge we have the challenge of 'All Things Christmas' and we are sponsored by the wonderful Elisabeth Bell who gave us some beautiful images to play with. Then over at My Time To Craft Challenge we have the challenge of 'Quliting'. 

Before I get onto my card I just wanted to let you know that My Time To Craft are having a DT Call so if you fancy creating with your own images and supplies this could be the team for you plus we are all really really friendly. We are looking for around 5 people, plenty of places to go around so if you fancy it just add DT after your name when you enter the challenge.

For my card I used a quilting block template from the Silhouette store by Snapdragon Snippets although most of it is covered up lol. I cut this out of some -- papers and then stitched them on my machine, can you see the wonky stitching I thought this would be easier than drawing the stitching on but oh so much more stressful. I used the print and cut feature on my silhouette to cut the image out of the frame background, then cut this pretty frame front by Skyber Lowen from card stock which I then triple embossed and added glamour dust to the final coat. It doesn't really show well in the photo but it really is glossy and sparkly. The sentiment was a freebie from Create With TLC and I also added some holly and berries (after putting glossy accents on the berries) by Rivka Wilkins again from the Silhouette Store.
