Piling it on with a Christmas card

Sunday, July 5, 2009

It's time for another Christmas card. I'm sad that I didn't get to play last week so I definitely "needed" to play this week. Sparkle has another great sketch to use. I also found a new challenge site, Pile it on. Their challenge this week is to use 3 different embellishments. I used buttons, waxy flax, and a rhinestone. Also, with the Pile it on challenges, you have to combine their challenge with another challenge. Easy peasy as I often do that.

***Supplies***
Patterned paper: BG Wassail
Stamps: CTMH No Peeking
Other: Nesties, CTMH Buttons, waxy flax, and rhinestone, CTMH Markers


Thanks for your visit and your comments. Have a great Sunday.
