Monthly Circle Challenge Entry.

Here is my project for the November Monthly Challenge on the Circle Blog.  You have to have the following incorporated into your project.

The theme for this month’s challenge is all about cozying up your home with Handmade Home Decor! Please create a home decor project. Project must be newly created for this challenge and should include the following elements to qualify:
•Use atleast one Cricut Cartridge Cut
•Use the Cuttlebug in some way (embossing folder, Cuttlebug die, Quilling kit, etc.)
•Use Felt in some way
•Use the color GREEN somewhere on your project

I started with my Imagine and printed and cut the banners using Country Life and Snow Angel Cartridges, and then I ran them thru my Cuttlebug to emboss them.

Out of felt, I die cut the Bird and the backing for the Bird out of cardstock.

I cut the Holly out of Christmas Cheer and made the tail for the birds.

I made rosettes that spell Merry & Bright.

Finally I assembled the entire project, stringing the banners on the Martha Stewart bakers twine and tied ribbon between the letters.

Hope you like it.  Also don't forget to check out my video below on how to make Tim Holtz inspired Rosettes using your Gypsy and TBBM, complete with score line.

Thanks for visiting, and if you like what you see, please leave some love,
