Going Crackers! 'Decorate it' Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy Friday!

I've had a hectic but fulfilling week with the children's Christmas parties and pantomimes, meetings, celebrating my birthday and working on Christmas commissions.

The Daring Cardmakers are stepping away from the cards one last time this year. The challenge was about adding those little extras to 'Decorate it!'.  I decided to use a ready die cut cracker from Stix 2 Anything.  I used it as my base and added ribbons, foil tape and a die cut snowflake that I covered in gold glitter.  I added a metallic red candy to the centre.


I do hope that if you've made anything suitable you'll join in with the Challenge here and check out the other fabulous inspirational makes this week. 

Enjoy your weekend!
