Challenge #5 - Embellish It!

Hello, it's Denyse here,
Welcome to the 5th Challenge for Papercraft Junkies!
This month it is my turn to choose a theme and I have chosen, "Embellish It!"
You can choose any subject that you like but your project must have at least one embellishment and you have to make the embellishment yourself! (You can use punches, die cuttters, paper etc whatever you like to make your embellishment but there must be one embellishment on the card which was not bought!)
All the usual rules apply and you have until 09.59 am December 15th to get your entries in. We would be delighted to see any type of project provided it complies with the rules :)
There are prizes and badges on offer but the prize is BIGGER if you use a Papercraft Junkie  Digital stamp! You can check the rules and prizes in the side bar.
I will also let you into a secret ... there are FREE digi stamps waiting for you in the PCJ online shop and there is also a SALE on, so I can't think better reasons to click HERE and fill up your shopping baskets!!
The results of  challenge #4 will be available in a few days so please check back and see who has won. Each fortnight the winners are chosen not picked at random and so you can be sure that your time and effort is appreciated by us here at PCJ.

As always the design team have produced some fabulous inspiration for you... 

Tracey has not only made the beautiful flower herself but has designed and made this gorgeous bag! She has used the "tweet" image of a little birdie from PCJ! (sorry couldn't resist!)

Fiona-Kate has used the lovely framed style digi stamp and has embellished it with a freehand drawing and gems made from liquid pearls.

Caroline has made a beautiful card and embellished it with a stunning handmade charm and bows. I love the elegance of the PCJ digi stamp that she has used.

Andree has used the Christmas tree digi stamp to create this elegant card. The handmade wire embellishments look beautiful and are perfect on a Christmas tree card.

Erin has used my favourite Digi stamp! (from the Rustin Collection)
 Her striking card is embellished with cogs and wheels looks fabulous!

I have been playing with pouring melted embossing powders into silicone moulds, so I made my button for this project. I wanted to use the stunning PCJ Digi Stamp and decided to give it a Gothic feel. 

I am REALLY looking forward to seeing your entries and look forward to commenting on them all!
