Hello and welcome to Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday December challenge
taking place right here on my blog! I'm so happy you decided to stop by today
and hopefully you'll link up your own creation too! There were some wonderful
entries last month so be sure to scroll down to see who made the top 3!
As a reminder, the theme is now always.......
and instead of a challenge theme there will be a "Top Pick Twist" but
nobody knows what the twist will be (not even me) until the challenge closes
as it will be inspired by YOUR creations. So do link up all your new or
recently created projects for a chance to be featured. Remember, you may
share anything crafty, handmade by you. It doesn't have to be a card.
And here is what I made:
Stamps used: Winterscape
Anonymous // Snowflake Greetings - Dare to be Artzy (no longer available)
This card was inspired by the sample on the packaging for Beneath the Birches
die set. I did use different stamps and created a stormy winter sky by
stenciling some clouds
and using a
pen for snow.

Challenges I am linking up with:
Last Month's Top Picks with a Twist:
As mentioned previously, there is now a Top Pick Twist when it comes to my selection of Top Picks. Nobody knows what the twist will be - not even me - until the end of the month as the twist will be totally inspired by YOUR creations. This means the top picks will all have something in common.
The Top Pick Twist from the November entries is ............ Seasonal Simplicity so you will see this twist reflected in each one of the top pick's cards. Remember: Simplicity doesn't necessarily mean simple to make but to me it rather means "simple in design". I just love how each one of these features a simple but eye catching design.

Congratulations! Well deserved recognition! Your top pick logo is below, feel free to post it to your own blogs if you like to :)
I will continue to pin the top picks to the dedicated Pinterest board, but will also include photo and link back to the original blogs/sites here. These will be removed at the start of the new challenge to stay in compliance with GDPR.
