PDCC 112

Hey everyone! I've had some time on my hands to join some challenges this holiday season. I tell you, I think I used to join them almost everyday before I started working for different DTs. Now I don't have as much time to do that anymore, and so whenever I do get a chance to, it's so much fun. This one is for The Play Date Cafe Challenge 112.

It's a nice Christmas colored theme, perfect for the holidays. Here's my card. I stayed neutral for most of the card, with little splotches of color. I just LOVE neutrals. I stamped a newspaper print background using some PTI stamps and distressed the edges. Then I adhered some patterned paper strips over it. I zigzag stitched the panel on my newspaper print background.

I used one of my favorite holiday stamps from The Craft's Meow, Vintage Snowflakes. I also added this beautiful flourish from Waltzingmouse Stamps, Flourishes - Scallops and Dots.

To tie it all off, I added a lace ribbon, a button and some pearl stick pins. It was so much fun just making a card like this. Card challenges are so much fun, maybe I'll go look for some more to join...

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy New Year!!!
