Have A Dazzling Christmas!

Hello Friends and Welcome Back for another Add A Little Dazzle Challenge!

We are in week two of our Christmas in July Celebration.

 This week's Add A Little Dazzle Challenge #33 is an inspiration challenge~

 I just love this inspiration photo; it brings back memories of childhood, of sneaking out of bed at night to check out the packages underneath the Christmas tree! 
I made two Christmas packages from Brushed Gold cs and added ribbons to them, the ribbons being Scarlet Red and Garland Green strips of Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets.  I 'curled' my ribbon by wrapping the strips of craft metal sheet around the handle of a small paint brush.

The backdrop for my packages is a red circular mat cut with Spellbinders Exquisite Circles die and lined with a white piece of cs that is embossed with a very old Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The embossed piece of white cs has been sitting on my desk forever! 
The red circle is matted on a piece of retired SU dsp and then adhered to a Very Vanilla card base.

I hope you can join us for this fun Christmas Challenge!  
There is a $15 gift certificate up for grabs 
if you would like to do a little shopping (and who wouldn't!?), we are offering a limited time ADD A LITTLE DAZZLE CRAFT METAL SHEET Week 2 PACKAGE.  This package includes 6 sheets each of Garland Green and Scarlet Red Craft Metal Sheets.  In addition, you will also receive  pdf tutorials that will inspire you with Christmas card ideas using these colors.  As soon as you place your order you will receive instant access to the pdfs.  You can place your Craft Metal Sheet ORDER HERE

I am linking this card up to the Shopping Our Stash/Jingle Belles Challenge this week- Use something at least a year old on our card.  Everything except the craft metal sheets are over a year old.  But in particular, that embossed piece of white cs is several years old!
It is also perfect for the challenge over at Festive Friday this week~

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!
