Celebrate Christmas with Decorative Doilies

Hello, crafting friends!
I am thrilled to be guesting at Uniko's Nov/Dec challenge today after being a challenge winner back in the summer! The theme for November/December is Celebrate with an optional theme of Red/Green.

I am a genuine fan of Uniko's beautifully designed, excellent quality stamps, and have plenty to choose from in my stash, but it seemed fitting to use the stamp set I chose as my prize :)

The set is Decorative Doilies - The Hands of Time. I just love it - AND it's on sale! The doilies remind me of those bang-on-trend honeycomb decorations (I've already used it on a male birthday card here!) and some could be used as stylised snowflakes too! I used bright red ink to stamp a sentiment on a card panel using a 'celebrate' from Pink Fresh Studios and 'The magic of Christmas' from a retired Uniko set. 

The decorations were stamped around it in green ink and the panel trimmed to size with a stitched rectangle die from Heffy Doodle. The panel was mounted onto a red card base and the centres of the decorations were embellished with clear gems.
So now it's over to you! Beverley and her amazing Uniko Brand Ambassadors have loads of fabulous inspiration for you so do hop over to the Uniko Studio blog to check it out! You'll find the linky tool there so that you can enter your own creation and be in with a chance of winning a fabulous prize!

I'm playing along at Allsorts, Stamping Sensations and We Love Stamping where the themes are all Christmas.

We are having a unusually fine November with some lovely spells of autumn sunshine, although the nights are certainly chilly! The sunsets have been beautiful too and I managed to capture yesterday evening's.

So uplifting!
Sending hugs,
