A Christmas Card

 

 

I have been really slacking in the card making recently!  I made this card for several challenges.  And I am trying to make more Xmas cards this year than I did last year.

Patterned Paper - Me & My Big Ideas
Solid Cardstock - The Paper Co
Stamp - Magnolia Tilda w/ Candy Cane
Misc - Martha Stewart Loops Punch around the Page, EK Success Scallop Punch, Stickles, Bic Mark It Markers, Gelly Roll White Pen, Buttons from my stash, Prima flower & leaves,

Challenges:
1. Friday Sketchers - sketch (I turned it sideways)
2. Magnolia Stamp Lovers - buttons or bows (I have both - there's a bow on the candy cane!)
3. Cute Card Thursday - blooming gorgeous
4. Simon Says Stamp - inspiration (red rose with green leaves)
5. Stamp, Scrap, & Doodle - open theme
6. ABC Christmas - C is for candy
7. Winter Wonderland - Candy cane red & white
8. Your Next Stamp - anything that sparkles
9. Crafty Creations - wings
10. Stamp Something - delightfully delicious food
