'Add some Twinkle'...............................

Hi everyone!

It's a new challenge over at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and this weeks challenge is 'Add Some Twinkle'. Now, you may have missed it and quite honestly, if you have, where have you been? BUT June/July is when all the companies in the land of craft start showcasing this years Christmas products and oh my lord, has Nikky Hall not knocked them all for six with the STUNNING new addition to the 'Work & Play' collections.

Nikky is launching Work & Play Hollibobs CD-Rom on Create & Craft TV later on this month so make sure you stay tuned for the launch date.

For the current Polkadoodles Challenge I opted to use 'Choir' which is both a black and white digi or precoloured. I opted for the precoloured option. I thought that for the challenge I would make a gift bag.  I opted for a medium gift bag and printed off a backing paper from the collection, which I matted onto navy cardstock.  I printed off the image and matted it also onto navy cardstock and then resized and printed off the bell embellishment. I added some glitter (my twinkle - obviously) to the Choir scene and added some Christmas ribbon. Voila!

 A quick and easy transformation from a boring run of the mill white bag into a stunning christmas gift bag.  Please remember to pop over to the main challenge blog  and see the rest of the design teams inspiration, I hope you join in the challenge too, I love to see your entries.

That's all for now, see you soon!
