Non-Traditional Christmas at Delicious Doodles.

Happy Friday everyone!! Woohoo!! End of the week.. Happy Weekend!

This is the last month for us to have Delicious Doodles Challenges. I will miss being on this DT :)  I love Teri's images so much!! We will still find them online though :) Her images will be at Card Making Downloads starting in the new year! They will be handling all of the VAT tax issues and Teri will still be able to sell all her fantastic images to us!!  I'm so happy that she was able to find a new way to handle everything!

Okay.. enough of that! On to our new Challenge!! Challenge #117 is Non-Traditional Christmas. For this I chose to use a non-traditional Christmas image:








For this card I used Holly Sugar Skull which can be found for a bit longer at Delicious Doodles. I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils. I popped the skull up one layer. All of the berries are covered with Diamond Glaze to give them a berry nice shine! LOL  And the centers of the little flowers have a bit of Pearl Paint. I inked the edge of the Stamp Die which is from My Favorite Things. I added a bit of stitching down the side of the image. I used a border punch and cut red and green and layered those. on the one side I added the red and green gems to that same border punch. I added the bit of ribbon and the buttons and stamped the sentiment and added it to a small banner at the top. I decorated the inside with the same papers and inked the white center paper. All of the papers are scraps from last years Christmas papers!

They say art is subjective and while this is not an image one would necessarily warm to, you have done an admirable job in interpretation. I admire that. Thanks for joining the Craft-Dee BowZ December challenge.
