CES Challenge No 6 - Get Ahead Get a Hat!



Hi everyone - yay it's Saturday - heaven!  No work and time too for the next challenge over at Crafty Emma's Store Challenge Blog. This week it's my turn to set the challenge and I've chosen the theme of Hats.  So, we want to see hats on your card in some shape or form, either on your image or on your papers or backgrounds - you decide!!
Emma has an amazing prize up for grabs too - one lucky entrant could win these gorgeous papers - Glitterati by Memory Box.


For my card, I've used one of the so lovely Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps.

I've also used the most fabulous Christmas Papers, Home for the Holidays, by Webster's Pages which are available from Crafty Emma's Store.  As they are so gorgeous, I didn't want to hide them behind lots of layering and embellies! The poinsetta flowers are also from Emma's store and I distressed the edges slightly and added lots of stickles.  The holly leaves are from my stash and I added the dew drops (Emma's!) to look like the berries.

I coloured the image using my Promarkers, also sold by Emma, I've edged the image with an Inkadinkoo snowflake flourish and then added more stickles to her hat, bobbles and the ground!!

The DT at Crafty Emmas Challenge have totally wowed me with their cards this week, so hop on over and take a peek. 

Thanks for popping in - I hope to get round to see a few peeps over the weekend!!
