PolkaDoodles #34: All Things Bright & Beautiful

Howdy-doo-dee, folks! We're still away on holidays... which means you'll have to put up with another scheduled DT post for PolkaDoodles:

love Christmas and wasn't about to miss out on a challenge with so much Christmas potential for no good reason! So I'm gate-crashing team A's party with this festive step card. The theme this week is "All Things Bright And Beautiful". (Remember that hymn form Sunday School?!)

On my card, the colours are bright, the baubles are bold, the presents are plentiful and the fairy... so beautiful! All papers, images, elements and greetings are from Polka Doodles' fabulous new Christmas collection called Angelberry Christmas. To finish my card I used just one thing - some twine! For dimension, I popped the pressies up on some foam tape...and I'm done!

I'm sticking to trad Christmas theme but you'l find loads of funky, groovy, non-trad colours and designs in the Angelberry Collection.

Here is a side view of the card. The step card is a great to showcase a lovely image , such as this tree decorating angel.  

And I let myself loose on a roll of foam tape. From this gorgeous Angelberry CD  I cut out the  presents and baubles and used foam tape to add some dimension to the card. Voila! A fun little Christmas card!

Challenges for this card:
Jellypark Challenges "Things That Fly"
Sister Act Card Challenge #21 "Anything Goes"

I do hope you'll join in this week's challenge. The ever-generous Nikky has lined up some wonderful prizes for 3 lucky winners. And if you're stuck for ideas,  head on over to the rest of the DT....and prepare to be stunned... and inspired, of course!

I may not be able to visit all of you, but I will make an effort to stop by when I can. And to all my wonderful friends and visitors - Thank You so much for your lovely comments. If you want to know what we've been up to, hop on over to my Facebook page (be my friend) for some (amateur) pix.
