We Wish You a Blessed Christmas - C4C and More!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  It is time for another challenge with the crazies at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C164). 

 Joycelyn is the host for November!
This week's challenge is all about a BIG BOWMake a creation with a BOW and you are good to go!

For my card, I am using some PTI stamps and dies.   I stamped the background and used bits and pieces of sentiments to create this larger one.  I am also playing along with Papertrey's weekly Make it Monday Challenge this week which is to layer vellum.   I layered the stars and also layered vellum behind the blessed die cut to create a subtle shadow effect. I am using Retro Sketch #38.  I did add a big bow!

Check out what the rest of the team did with this week's challenge!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
