FFC06 - Theme Challenge...

We're back again with another Festive Friday challenge! We are enjoying seeing all of you return over and over to share your creations! As usual, we have a few projects that stood out from the gallery that we want to share with you!

Shout Outs!

We love how Kim incorporated all of the colours in her stamped snowflake banner, and the tag sets the entire design off perfectly!

We were impressed with how well Cara used these vintage-loving colours to create this super trendy ikat design!

Another stunning creation by Ardyth. We love the movement she created by using a circle stamp behind her snowflakes.

And our Winner!

Yes, we gave Chupa a shout out last week, but we couldn't help but name her winner this challenge as well! The colouring of this beautiful image was just too breathtaking!

And now, onto our new challenge for the next couple of weeks! Today, it's time for a theme challenge:

Think fabulous cocktail parties and grand department store Santa displays for this one... here is what the design team came up with:


This week, we are welcoming the talented Nina Yang, of Waffle Flower Crafts as our Guest Designer!

Hello, my name is Nina Yang. I have been interested in stationary and gift packaging since a kid. Stamping and card making came after I started working from home in 2011. Fun & cute, bright & bold are my favorite styles. Cards and party / home decor items are my favorites to make. I share my projects at my blog, hoping to offer something new or inspiring every time. I love everything retro! So glad to be guesting for the challenge this week.

Here is Nina's gorgeous creation using this week's theme:

Now that you've seen what we did with the theme, it's your turn! Create any holiday themed project based on the above theme and link us up below! You can combine our challenge with your other favourite challenges, and enter as many times as you like. This challenge will run until April 24, 2013 at 11:59PST. 

***Please remember to link up your actual blog post and not just your blog address!***

***As it takes time for our designers to visit your blog, please consider shutting off your captcha so that we might be able to more easily leave you some love!***

2013 Festive Friday Grand Prize! 
We want to give you even more incentive to stay on top of your holiday card stash, and we also want to encourage you to continue playing with us! Our last challenge will launch in the middle of November, and at that time, we will be offering a $40 Gift Certificate to one of three online shops to one lucky player who has participated in 15 or more of our challenges! Keep the images of your entries handy - you'll need them!
