Cool Yule

Hi every one,



Well I've been busy once again making a few cards.  I am really enjoying the challenges over at Jingle Belles.  This week's challenge is a colour challenge.  I try to do every challenge & so far I've only missed a couple due to either a lack of that week's challenge item or a lack of time.  I was really pleased to see the challenge this week as I had just finished making a baby card in simular colours.  So I made this card up with yes you guessed it - Scraps!  The background paper is from a freebie digi kit (Winter Wonderland from Two Peas). The three images are from the one stamp Stamp-it's Christmas Post (3632E Micky Choo).  The circle stamp is by Hero Arts Cl237 Holiday Gift Tags. 

I kept this card fairly simple.  All I did was stamp the images in Versamark Sepia onto white c/s & kraft c/s.  Then I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the snow flake.  I cut apart the the Stamp-it image & used my cuttlebug & circle Nestibilities on the Hero Arts stamp.   I also used a Martha Stewart punch & some crochet lace. 

Thanks for looking & Happy crafting everyone xoxoxoxo
