Merry Christmas...



Blog-hop-logo

I love making Christmas cards, but I never make that many. I always run out of time.  This challenge makes me want to make more!  I love the color combos for the PTI Blog hop this month.  I picked one that was most definitely a challenge!  


Here is my card...

IMG_8412

I used PTI 2010 Holiday tags and made a CAS card with just a little stamping involved.  I had a hard time with the yellow snowflakes at first, but I've seen it done before....so I went with it!  :)  Then I ran the whole thing through with the Linen IP...broken record right?  I say that last part a lot!  

I bet we will see lots of fun color combos today!  I can't wait to check them out!  And I can't wait to hear what you think.  Does it really feel like a Christmas card?  :)

Thanks for taking the time to stop in today!  Have a great day!
