Maggie's masterpiece

Regulars will know that we take pride in featuring ALL of our winners if they're happy to contribute a guest piece for us: Today we're delighted to show you a make from Maggie, one of our Top 3 winners and what a stunning card it is!

"My card is heavily inspired by my Tim Holtz stash which seemed appropriate for the challenge theme Bah Humbug which immediately said to me " A Christmas Carol" and Victorian Silhouettes die and Kraft resist Christmas Memories paper stash shouted "use me"! I picked a square with Christmas Carols in resist which seemed apt and inked with Barn Door Distress inks to a deep shade to really bring out the resist areas, Frame was cut from metallic paper and sanded.  Next a layer of designer paper Holidays Past and a Salvage Sticker were mounted behind frame and matted and layered with kraft, red and black card. Tattered Garland die and Festive Greenery were used to cut the flower embellishment, lastly I added some glitter for snow as the carol singers are standing outside and it's snowing on a very cold Christmas Eve!!"

Wow! Thank you Maggie for this wonderfully inspiring project!

Maggie has demonstrated just how creative you can be with just a few items so we hope those of you who haven't entered yet will find a little time to do so.  

More in a few days!  xxx
