Anything Goes at the Paper Crafting Journey Challenge

It's Thursday and so we have a new challenge starting over at the PCJ challenge. This fortnight the theme is everyone's favourite of 'Anything Goes' so no excuses for not joining in with your paper craft creations. Just remember the rules though - maximum of 3 entries and no back linking - and you could be in with a chance to win the prize from our sponsor Digital Delights.

I'm still on the christmas card production line and I've used another of the fabulous House Mouse decoupage sheets from the 'Wishes For Christmas' collection. I wanted to keep it quite CAS but also bling it up a bit so I followed the theme of the image and added some tiny christmas bells/baubles which I 'strung up' with twine. The background paper is from the Kate Knight christmas collection which I've had since before last christmas and the sentiment is from another decoupage sheet.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
House Mouse & Friends challenge 'Anything goes with twine'
ABC Christmas challenge 'U.. for under the tree'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'Anything Goes + optional sketch'
Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge 'Getting ready for christmas' (my 3rd entry)
Polkadoodles challenge 'Christmas is coming' (my 2nd entry)

Thanks for popping by and I do hope you can come and join us on the challenge blog.
