Fab'n'Funky Challenge #236

Hi everyone,
I hope your week is going well.
We had a few snow flurries on the weekend... way too early for that white stuff but temps have warmed up a bit so we are back to fall.  It's taken me a while to get back in the swing of things after the wedding.  We had our granddaughter stay with us for a week, along with 2 dogs and a bird so our house was full of life and is now so quiet.  
   Today starts a new challenge at 
where the theme is "3 Embellishments"

I've used a cute image generously supplied to us by our lovely sponsor this week  
 She is called Claudia Loves Christmas  and can be found here

My 3 embellishments are Ribbon, Rhinestones and Die Cuts.

I'm lovin the new MB Christmas dies, especially the Pine Needle used on the top, cut in red & cream. I also layered the new Plush Poinsettia Corner die on top. The Pine Branch is a Marianne die #LR0181.    Ribbon is Offray from Michaels
Another favourite is the Recollections Rhinestone Sheet, also from Michaels.
Image coloured with Copics.
DP and tag are Simple Stories Cozy Christmas

Inside decorated with tag from Simple Stories as well.

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week.  
There is a great prize from our wonderful sponsor for the winner.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew #74 - Christmas Joy
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Bingo (ribbon, rhinestones, die cuts)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays #231 - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the week.
