My True Love Gave to Me...

Hey there crafty friends...

Wow, it's time for our first December challenge over at the Double D Challenge Blog!  We are celebrating the "Twelve Days of Christmas" and have a fun, two part challenge for you.  I think we all know the beloved "Twelve Days of Christmas" song from days gone by.  It brings back memories of traveling with my parents and siblings while singing this song repeatedly!
 
Your challenge is to be inspired by the mood board for the first six days....
 
Twelve Days of Christmas
 
1st Day Partridge In a Pear Tree
2nd Day Two Turtle Doves
3rd Day Three French Hens
4th Day Four Calling Birds
5th Day Five Golden Rings
6th Day Six Geese A Laying
 
 
You could be the winner of a Top Creative badge for your blog or this prize chosen by random.org.

Impression Obsession Doves
 
Here's my inspiration...I used a few of the days on my card!

"My true love gave to me..."
 

This 6" square card has lots of layers, dimension and texture using several different holiday paper collections.  I used strips of paper to make a "package" design and embellished with a gold foil doily and numerous tags.  A few fussy cut flowers and holly are tucked in around the different tags. 

From my stash...
Colorbox Chalk Ink Chestnut Roan
CTMH Ivory Cardstock
Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas and Winter Wonderland Collections
Other: Gold foil doily
