Christmas Spirit Challenge #6

Happy Friday! It's October 1st and time to announce this months Christmas Spirit Challenge for Flourishes. This months challenge is One Stamp Two Looks. This is the perfect challenge if you have a limited amount of Christmas stamps or if you just love one stamp but do the same thing all the time. Spice it up baby! Check out all the details and the winner of last months challenge over on the SCS Forum for Flourishes.



Now I have done some of my favorites already like Dove and Holly and Santa I believe. This month I pulled out the best wreath on the stamping market called Christmas wreath. This has the most detail I have seen in a wreath on paper since I don't know when. We have a warm and cozy version and a bold and bright version. Do you see how the color can really change how you see the card? Well I can atleast, lol Both wreaths are cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The yummy scallop ribbons are red and brown and are in stock over at Flourishes. I have a few more goodies lined up for this months challenge so be sure to check back. This challenge was a bit of a stretch for me but I had fun with it! Hope you do too. Check out what the other DT created for the challenge:
