Morning Folks,

I hope you're keeping well and not too busy with Christmas preparations.  It's our last challenge at As You Like It for this year and we are asking which is your favourite Christmas sentiment?

I do like good old Merry Christmas and this one, which is from the Ornate Ornaments set from Simon Says Stamp always works really well when heat embossing.  I have heat embossed the ornaments in gold and coloured them with Tambai Starry Colours, which are varying shades of gold. The paints are quite shiny irl and I have taken a close up for you to get a better idea.

I fussy cut them and attached to a cream piece of card which had been cut out with a stitched rectangle and added gold twine.

The sponsor for the challenge is:
