Sweet Stamps December Guest Designer~Non Traditional Xmas Colors

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello Everyone!
Hope you had a great weekend!
So, are you ready for Christmas?
I still have a few last minute things to do but things are coming along great! I should be done mid week and then I can relax and enjoy, yeah!

It's Monday and that means another GD project to share with you for Sweet Stamps weekly challenge. Hope you come join in :)  
This week the challenge is: Non Traditional Christmas Colors

I have created a fun wine bottle topper: I used some colors I would not typically use together but I really like the way it turned out. I can't wait to make more! 
The wine bottle topper was a file I picked up at the Silhouette Store, Design # 22157. The back panel is pattern paper from SU which was distress with the Zutter DIA and adhered in place. I also added a fun scallop edge around the opening by using a SU punch to give it more flair.
I embossed the front pocket with the snowflake folder, added a small panel across the from and and adhered this gorgeous deer on the front.  The beautiful deer is Sweet Stamps sc029 Classy Deer metal die and the sentiment is stamped with 8028 Happy Winter stamp set.
I added a snowflake using the 2019 Ice Crystal Snowflake metal die.  Another snowflake layer was added using a Martha Stewart punch and the gem is from Recollections. To finish my project, I tied on a pretty bow and filled the pocket with yummy Ghiradelli chocolates. Great to go along with a great bottle of wine, right? 
You can find the sentiments and metal dies I have used today here at the
 Sweet Stamps STORE.
