Daring Cardmakers Challenge & Mini Giveaway

Hi there

I know.. I'm posting again, it is amazing for me but I've been busy in my studio lately!

Daring Cardmakers are having a challenge to create a Christmas themed card for a Papercraft Inspirations Magazine Party,  and as I'm on a mission to get lots of different Christmas designs done I thought I'd play along!  This one happened to be a lucky one of those 'here's one I made earlier cards' that fitted in with the challenge, don't you just LOVE it when that happens.  I have to be honest it's quite rare for me.  The reality is I make the card and then completely miss the deadline lol

I bought this background Basic Grey paper a few years ago when I was making my own Christmas cards for the year, but totally overestimated how much I needed and still have about 20 sheets left despite having made dozens of cards!

The Christmas tree is by Sizzix, which I have just embellished with thick silver glitter card, and mounted onto various sizes of Nesties.  I wanted it to have a bit of a Shaker style so added the gingham ribbon tied with twine to match the green distressed edges of the paper.

I'm still trying to work out what my card making style is.  I keep reading about the different categories. What do you reckon mine is?!  Fun & Cute, Clean & Graphic, Classy & Elegant, Shabby & Vintage

Leave me a comment  by Saturday 9th October, midnight, GMT, telling me what you think my cardmaking style is and I will select a random winner to receive these two stamps from SU!

For greater chances to win post a note in the sidebar of your blog about this mini giveaway and add another comment to let me know! 

Have fun, and if you haven't started making Christmas cards yet now's a good time!  I am starting early for a change, woohoo!!
