CHRISTMAS STYLE {Guest Designing for Crafting by Designs}

{City Sidewalks, Busy Sidewalks, Dressed in Holiday Style
in the air there's a feeling of CHRISTMAS}

What a surprise when I was an October 2015 Spotlight Winner for  Crafting by Designs and got invited by the lovely Doris to be a guest designer for them. Their current challenge which is HERE COME THE HOLIDAYS. 

I used this beautiful image from Art by Mi Ran called  SUZI SNOWFLAKES and you can purchase her here.  

So with no further ado, here is my creation with no surprises at all, its another centre step card. The sentiment is from Create with TLC.  The image has been coloured with Copics. The flower embellishments were created with flower punches. The design paper and brads are from my stash.  Also added some stickles for a bit of sparkle.  The blue dots around the edges of the card is washi tape.

So hop on over to CRAFTING BY DESIGNS and have a look at me featuring as guest designer as well as their Design Team's gorgeous creations, and oh yes, don't forget to enter the challenge.
