Christmas Card Challenges #49 -- Pop it Up

Sunday, November 3, 2013

First off, it's my daughter's birthday so HAPPY BIRTHDAY REYNNA.  I can't believe she is 14 years old already.  It really seems impossible.

Okay, back to business.  Today's card is for this week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges which is a relatively easy one, Pop it Up.  It's also the first challenge of the month which means that one lucky participant will win a rubber stamp from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.  How cool is that?

I let my pretty patterned paper do pretty much all the work on this card.  Some foam tape, stitching, and an edge distresser did the rest of the work.
I'm also linking this up to the anything goes challenges at both Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

First of all, Happy Birthday Reynna! Wow, 14, huh? Why won't those kids quit growing when we ask them too? I hope she has a fabulous day!

That paper sure is pretty, Alanna. I don't often think to let the paper do the hard work and this reminds me how neat it can look. Thanks. The simple things you've done have created a lovely card!

Have fun watching football today, even though the Broncos aren't playing.
