Serendipity November Challenge



It is time for another Serendipity DT challenge, and this month we were to make shaped cards! And once again I had to step out of my comfort zone...LOL!
I chose to do a circle card, but it ended up more like a snowflake or something...hee hee. Not the most practical card, but I just could`nt help myself:)
I used the beautiful Christmas Chapel image, and colored it with Distress Inks. The "snowflake" shape was made from Spellbinders dies.

And If you would like to take part in the customer challenge this month, you`ll have the chance to win a gift certfificate! You`ll find the information you need at the
Serendipity Stamps gallery.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!!
