Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge - Mid Month Inspiration

Hi Friends, it's a busy Monday and I'm back with my mid-month inspiration project for the Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge.   Jan is celebrating Christmas in July with a Huge Sale of 36 Christmas Sets plus new releases for the month of July.  She also has a FREE set you'll want to grab before the month is over.

For my project today, I'm featuring the Christmas Holly digital stamp and sentiment, a set that is currently on sale for July, and created an A2 sized card.

The image has been colored using alcohol markers and die cut with a nesting circle die from Kat Scrappiness.  I've distressed the edges of the circle using a Tim Holtz distressing tool.

The designer papers are from the Bo Bunny "Tis the Season" 6x6 paper pack.  I've used a corner punch to give the panels more interest.  The focal panel has been popped on craft foam and red gems added for additional shine.

We are half way through the monthly challenge, you have until 12 noon on 31 July to enter.  Please visit the challenge blog for team inspiration using some of the new sets released this month along with a few older sets.  

Thanks for visiting and until next time, Happy Crafting!
