3D Christmas

Good morning all!
I am here today to share a new technique with you and the November challenge over at Technique Tuesday. This month, Mynnette and all my DT sisters at Technique Tuesday want to see some 3D Punched elements on your card. They don't have to be Christmas themed, just 3D. Mynnette has posted a super easy tutorial on the Challenge blog and it is tons of fun to make these up.

Here is the card I made for the Design Crew this month:

Ribbon that I added gems to and the larger gems beside sentiment

3D Punched ornaments

Just the bottom half

Flat ornaments on bottom half

Another look at the top half
November's Top Winner will receive 3 digital sentiments made by our lovely Captain, Mynnette, and each stamper who's card is showcased will receive 1 digital sentiment made Mynnette! ;) Here's the best part--THE WINNERS get to choose what they want their sentiment to say and what style! If this doesn't sound like something you'd like, you could choose from some sentiments that she already has made. :) More details will be forthcoming after winners are announced.
Be sure you pop by all my DT sisters blogs and Mynnette's to have a peek at their fabulous creations too.
