613 Avenue Create #71-Anything w/ Twist Make Your Own Challenge

Hi, friends!  First, let me say Happy Mother's Day to all mothers. I hope you have a blessed day.
This week's challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the twist of Create Your Own Challenge using this chart:


Here's my card using Sassy Studio's Holiday Wreath:

I'm slowly but surely getting some holiday cards made - yea for me!! Here's the formula I used: Column 1: Image & Sentiment; Column 2: Die Cut; Column 3: Stickles; Column 4: Sequins; Column 5: Twine.

I colored the image using colored pencils and baby oil (a substitute for Gamsol - read about it on the internet). I cut out the image using an oval Nesties.  I added Christmas Red Stickles for the berries, and paper pieced the ribbon.  The die is popped up on the DP.  I then added Baker's Twine and sequins after stamping the small sentiment inside the wreath.

I'm entering these challenges:  Challenges 4 Everybody #41 - Anything Goes; The Glory of Christmas Challenge #33 - Anything Goes; and Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Challenge #176 - Let it Shine.

We want to see your creativity at 613 Avenue Create - be sure to stop by!


  1. Lovely!! I like the background for this beautiful wreath, Sheila! Awesome coloring and paper-piecing! Well done!

  2. Thanks for entering The Glory of Christmas challenge 32: 'bows' with your lovely card, Hazel , Glory of Christmas DT and my CHNC challenge 176 - you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for May - I'd love to see it there too. x

  3. This is a delightful Christmas card, Sheila! I especially love the stripes you used to paper-piece your ribbon!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. that is a very nice card, thanks for enjoying us as the christmas challenge blog, hugs, patty

  5. What a cute Christmas card Sheila! I love the paper pieced ribbon and your coloring with the oil is fabulous! Yay for you getting some Christmas cards made ahead of time. I so need to do this too, but haven't so far. lol Hugs

  6. Hey Sheila - nicely done! I especially like the paper pieced ribbon [that is some fussy cutting!] and the bling and baker's twine running at an angle. Very creative!

  7. Good for you in getting on the Christmas card bandwagon. You scored a home run with this one. Love the image and fantastic work on paper piecing that pretty ribbon. Bet that was tedious too. The stickles made great berries too. TFS & Hugs

  8. You know, I keep telling myself that I better get into the Christmas spirit earlier this year... your card is helping me with that : ) Can't wait to see what you do next week!
