Crafting with Dragonflies Challenge 11

Challenge No 11 at Crafting with Dragon flies is use use your scrap at least 5 different pattern papers
This is the card I made last night
I stamped Penny Black stamp "Christmas Wishes" onto green card and embossed the card with Stampin Up Mosaic embossing folder and added ribbon.  Used Stampin Up Mosaic punch and punched from 11 different papers from Kaiser Kraft Mint Twist paper pack and layered onto green card.  Layered all onto red card.

I would also like to enter this card into Crafty Hazel Nut's monthly Christmas challenge.


  1. Great idea Margaret. Love the way you have turned the mosaic punch into a bauble. Thanks for sharing with us at Crafting with dragonflies for out current challenge to use your scrap.
