*********************** A very different challenge

A very happy and creative new year to all my visitors.

This week I took part in another challenge from http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com/, a little different to my usual style but I really enjoyed it.
The base card is from Craft Creations, the beige card from Coordinations, blue and beige paper from my box, the cherry red card from The Paper Mill and the plum paper is from a recycled envelope (I keep all the coloured envelopes from received cards to use) and I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Paisley folder. I punche one side of the patterned beige paper with Fiskars daisy border punch.
The hat was cut and drawn on Pazzles, feathers, beads and ribbon from my craft box. I used a Spellbinders beaded circle and the sentiment is done on the computer.
Sorry the picture is not better but the light here is terrible.
Also a big thanks to everyone for visiting my blog and leaving such wonderful comments
