Hello All – It’s the first of the month again so that means a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge.  The winners and Top 3 of our May challenge have already been posted, so pop over and check if you were lucky this time.

For the month of June, my teamie Jo has picked the theme of Your Favourite Colour Combo.  We’re sponsored once again by the incredibly generous Marianne Designs.


This was easy for me as I love red and turquoise together for Christmas and jump at the chance to make a project with those colours.


I used free digi papers from The Shabby Princess, a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder for the white card, an EKSuccess punch for the cut-out and a cute little reindeer stamp from Imaginescence that I coloured with Prisma pencils.  My only embellishments are a Martha Stewart snowflake punched from scrap red card with a blue gem in the centre and a little red gem for Rudolph’s nose.  Nice and simple and another one that’s easy to replicate if I need more in a hurry!

We’d love to have you join in this month, the theme gives you lots of  scope, and we’re a multi craft challenge so you can make what you like.
