December 2014 Challenge - Christmas decoration (anything but a card)

Hello. It is Kym here again, Design Team Leader for Bearly Mine Designs. 
As you might have seen from a post on the Challenge Blog the other day, today is a very sad day as it is the last ever Bearly Mine Designs Challenge due to new European VAT laws coming in on 1 January 2015.

It would be lovely if you could play along for our last challenge.  To get you in the mood Donna is having a "Farewell Sale" over at Bearly Mine Designs and there is 50% off all digital sets so hurry on over and grab some bargains.

 Thank you for all the entries for last months’ challenge of “Christmas cards”. I hope you have popped back throughout the month to see the inspiration posts from the Design Team every couple of days. Every few days you will see cards/creations from a member of the Design Team using Bearly Mine Designs papers. They are all available in the Bearly Mine Designs Shop
