JOY TO THE WORLD {World Wide Open Design Team Challenge}


Our fifth challenge starts today over at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge, and we would love you to play along.

So here is my design team project for the World Wide Open Design Team Monthly Challenge  and, also for the first time only, using this cute and Besties image from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.  She is definitely ready for the festive season.

The  flower embellishments have been created with flower punches and the crochet centers are made for me by a very special friend.  She has been coloured with copics.  The brads, buttons and design papers are from my stash.  The flourishes have been stamped with Chiswick Acrylic Stamps.

The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  

Hop over to World Wide Open Design Team Challenge and enter your creations.  Here are the rules:
