Christmas Jar

It's Friday!!!  Yippie!!  It means the weekend is upon us, AND it is time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week we have this gorgeous inspiration photo:
Isn't it stunning?  I was inspired by the colors; love these together!  And it was perfect that I got to work with this sweet image from Bugaboo, our wonderful sponsor for the week.  So, I was inspired by the ornaments, too.  Here's my take on the challenge.

Now let's see how you are inspired by the photo.  There's so much to choose from.

Charisma Cardz #13--sparkle & shine (use glitter--don't you love those glittery snowflakes??)
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #181--include some gold or silver (I used silver pen on my image and the image panel is double matted on green and silver, and I embossed the sentiment with silver powder)
Sweet Stamps--anything goes
Holly Jolly--use at least 3 layers
Shopping our Stash #156--use your oldest punch or die (I'm pretty sure that scalloped punch is one of the first I ever bought, and the corner punch wasn't far behind)
Creative Inspiration #270--tie it up (use a bow)
Crafting by Designs--Favorite Holiday (definitely Christmas)
Divas by Design--use at least 3 layers
Little Miss Muffet--anything goes

Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps "Christmas Jar" digi; Verve "Merry & Bright" sentiment
Die/spunches/embossing folders: PTI "Frosty Flakes"; Sweet n' Sassy snowflake die;SU! scalloped border punch; Marvey Uchida corner punch; Spellbinders circles impressabilities
