Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #39 Anything Goes



Christmas is just a couple of days away and I am so excited. This is my favorite time of the year and this is the first year that I am STRESS FREE!! Yippee! I have been having so much fun making cards, decorating presents, shopping, partying, etc that I haven't felt any stress.
This is our final Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge for 2010 and the theme is "Anything Goes" I decided that I would use the Poinsettia image from Digi Doodle Shop to decorate one of my packages. I printed the flower out three times on white cardstock. The bottom layer is the entire image. For the middle layer of the flower I cut away the leaves and two of the flower petals. For the top layer I cut away all except for the center and three of the petals. Since I used heavy cardstock, I did not use pop dots for dimension. I simple curled the flowers slightly to give them some added dimension. I am hoping that you can see this in the second picture. I added stickles and some self adhesive beads to make the poinsettia sparkle and shine. My 16 year old son looked at the gift and said, "Mom how long did that take you, it is so pretty!" Awww, isn't he sweet? I will let you in on my secret....this was one of the easiest projects I have made so far and that package is beautiful!
We would love to have you join us for this challenge. Simple make a card or other project and link it up over at Digi Doodle Shop's Best for your chance to wind a gift certificate to the Digi Doodle Shop
