no stamps! moving along with the times challenge

Well when you can't use stamps it seems a little daunting and then you realise just how many other things you use that aren't stamps and then it just becomes confusing as you can't decide what to use as you have so many choices.

I decided that as I'd just got a freebie of some christmas stencils from one of the crafting mags I picked up in the supermarket yesturday I'd use one of these. The sketch was easy to follow until i had to add the 3 bits at the top nothing seemed to look right , I tried stars but that clashed with the stars on top of the trees , I thought about little jewel blingy bits but hadn't got any in the right colour and the same with brads. I tried gold and silver snowflakes they looked too much like the stars. In despiration I just drew 3 blobs of colour in the same pens , I'm still not sure they work but at least they are the right colours.Let me know what you think. Great challenge why not have a go yourself if you haven't already.
