Unstampabelles and sparkles

I've made a second entry for Unstampabelles  tic tac toe challenge.

TWIST journal about the decision making process










This time I've used sticker,brads and twine.

I had the gingerbread men and twine sitting on my desk. I mounted them on brown paper to simulate the actual gingerbread.
Next, I looked for a contrast green and came up with the checks. It looks like a tablecloth don't you think?

 and at Sparkles Christmas challenge the theme is cards for children.
Kids love lollies right?
 Here's a card featuring two yummy Christmas sweets.

Christmas cuties & Sweet sketch Wednesday

Christmas with the cuties wants cute animals.

I've this wood veneer bird to use.
On this card there is a strange mix of colours but I think it works.
The silver sparkle behind the bird is vellum.
The enamel dots are the same colour as the ribbon.(My sentiment)

This is the sketch at Sweet sketch Wednesday

As I don't do digis I hope I still qualify. My card is taller and not square so I varied it slightly.

This layout is for 2 challenges.

Lasting Memories asks us to use music or book paper.
I've used a piece of music above the photos.

I've used a FLAIR, FOILED pennant  and FANCY PANTS PAPERS.

The layout is a re-do from when I was first scrapbooking. It features my daughter and her Dad both at 7 months of age.
The papers as I said are Fancy Pants "Happy place".
The alphas are My Minds Eye "Cosy Christmas"
The foil pennant and matching "us" circle are from the St Tropez" range by Prima.The two stars and circle are so old that I've forgotten where they came from.
