6 Weeks Til Christmas!!!

Hope I didn't scare you, LOL, but Christmas has been on my mind quite a bit lately.
This month at Scrap Pile our challenges are all Christmas themed.
My challenge is to create a Christmas card which features some vellum & bling.
I haven't used vellum for ages but it can give a lovely effect especially on a Christmas card.
Here's my card

Over the weekend I decided I'd like to make an OTP item with the remaining contents of my DT kit & this cute little butterfly came together very quickly & was whisked away even quicker by my DD to put in her room.

The chipboard butterfly is making Memories, I've had it in my stash for a little while.
The papers are Basic Grey Urban Prairie & I've added some Maya Road scrolls which I've painted & coated with glitter.

We will be running some great Christmas classes at Scrap Pile during the last weekend of November. Come along & join us & get some wonderful ideas for some projects you can make for Christmas.

My very talented, beautiful daughter, Chloe, has made it all the way through to Week #10 in the SYTYCS challenge. This is the third last week & she has created 2 absolutely stunning layouts, so if you can spare some votes, I know she would dearly appreciate it.
Here are her gorgeous layouts-

Thanks for stopping by & I hope your week is a great one :)
