Challenge #44 Christmas Shaped Card


Good Tuesday morning! Today is not only time for another challenge at CTO, but it is my final post as a Design Team member. As you know, CTO is in the midst of their new Design Team call and everyone is invited to join. Because of so much going on in my life, I have decided not to try out again, but don't worry, I'm still going to play along when time allows!! You can't get rid of me that easily!! :) So now on to my card. Because of a time crunch I had to go with something simple. I tried to create something on my Gypsy, but it just wasn't working. Ever have one of those days when nothing goes as planned? Well that was my issue with this one. Sooooo, I pulled out my Martha Stewart punches. The pattern paper is from DCWV, the stamps are from Pink By Design, and of course, Stickles!! I used my Stampin' Up punch for the sentiment on the front and finished it off with some ribbon from Michael's. The 3 snowflakes have been sprayed with 3 different colors of Smooch. For such a simple card it took me quite awhile to pull it all together! Told you it was one of those days!! lol Well, I just want to thank all of you for stopping by and following me while I designed for CTO. I have had so much fun and met so many wonderful friends while playing with my fellow DT members and I encourage you to try out. Link up a piece of your creativity and give it a shot, you won't be sorry!
