A Little Holiday Cheer!

It's me again.  I have another Christmas card.  The colors are non-traditional, quite a change for me.  That is why we work with challenges, to stretch our creative boundaries.

I had a hard time getting the stamping to show up.  In person it looks great, but the flash may have bounced off the Very Vanilla to obscure the Baked Brown Sugar ... oh well.

I also played around with the scalloped circle of the Circle Collection Framelits.  I used it to make the Christmas Tree.  I had seen this done with scalloped punches and thought I would try it too.  To give it a bit of depth, I sponged with edges with Crumb Cake.

Stamp set:  Christmas Tagables (Photopolymer #134623)
Paper:  Early Espresso (#119686) and Very Vanilla (#101650)
Ink:  Baked Brown Sugar (#131174) and Crumb Cake (#126975)
Misc:  Bitty Banner Framelits (#129267), Circle Collection Framelits (#130911), Glue Dots (#103683) and Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)

This card is entered in the following challenge(s):
Christmas Card Challenges - No Embellishments
Merry Monday Christmas - #133 Rustic Christmas


 I had fun playing around with this card.  I hope challenges inspire you to play around with paper and ink too!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  I appreciate your coming by and hope you will leave me a comment letting me know what you think of my little card.
