ABC Christmas Challenge - E, F & G

Time for another challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge and Carol's our host this month.  There's a trio of themes this time, and they are -

'E for Emboss'
 'F for Frills'
'G for Glitter' 

It's up to you whether you make a card/project for only one theme, all of them or even combine them all into one super card/project.

Our sponsor this month is -
Wild Orchid Crafts
and the prize is a £20 voucher

There's also a prize on offer from Carol

I don't have anything in my craft stash that would qualify for the frills theme so I've chosen to make a card for each of the other two.

My 'E for Emboss' card
The Holly And Ivy Christmas - Anything Christmas goes
House-Mouse And Friends - Anything goes
The Corrosive Challenge - Anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - Anything Christmas
Cute Card Thursday - Anything goes

Image stamp - House-Mouse 'Carrying Mints'
Extras - Pearls, and the background was made by embossing teal coloured card with a Creative Expressions 'Candy Burst' embossing folder.

My 'G for Glitter' card.  I've put Glamour Dust on Henry's wings and the papers are glittery, but this hasn't shown up well on the photo.
Dragonfly Dreams - All that glitters
Crafting From The Heart - Anything goes
Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends - Anything goes
Through The Purple Haze - Anything goes

Image stamp -Whiff Of Joy 'Angel Henry'
Papers- First Edition 'Winter Wishes'
Extras - The snowflake was made with a Cuttlebug snowflake die, and I popped a pearl in the centre.  I sprinkled Glamour Dust onto Glossy Accents to make Henry's wings sparkly.
