Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge #1

Well the day is finally here for the new Magical Crafts Challenges launch.

Please come over and join us for our first challenge with some gorgeous prizes and a challenge with a few twists and turns.  The DT, Angel and myself are oh so excited and hope you will join us.

Our very first challenge for you is....

A Christmas Ornament/Decoration and/or a Matching Card
The twist is you must include the colours RED, GOLD & GREEN!!

We would like to see Christmas ornaments/decorations and cards, you can choose to make one or the other or you could make both.  If you do both you'll will get two entries into the draw for the prizes.  The colours used must include Red, Gold & Green, you can include other colours as long as the the accent colours are red, gold and green.

You'll have to check out the challenge blog to see all the wonderful DT projects, which we hope will inspire you and here's mine...

For my Christmas ornament/decoration I have made this fabby matchbox advent calender box using the Tracie Hudson tutorial over on Bubbly Funk.  I painted all the matchboxs with acrylic paint.  The card was made using the same papers and metallic card  as on the advent calender box.

Thanks for stopping by and please join us for our first challenge.
