Christmas Card Challenge

This is my second post today...if you are looking for my CASology & SSS Wednesday Challenge post, please check HERE :)

Hello there blog friends ~
Do you need a little inspiration to make last minute Christmas Cards? Well, Kylie Purtell (owner of Addicted to Stamps and More & Addicted to CAS) is having a Christmas Card Challenge on HER BLOG beginning today! The challenge will run from December 1st at 9am (AEST) until the December 21st at 6pm (AEST). The prize will be a Watermark and Signature created by Kylie valued at $40 U.S.!!!




For my card, I stamped and die cut the ornaments in 3 pastel colors, die cut the greeting in slate gray, and added the patterned paper to the bottom of the card. The bows and faux hangers were stamped in silver shadow ink, and I placed clear gems to the centers of the ornaments... and that was it!

A quick note: You may have noticed that I recently changed my Watermark and Signature...well, Kylie is the artist who created them! If you are interested in purchasing one or both for yourself, please check out Her Blog, and in the upper right-hand corner, you will see her contact information. All designs are customized, reasonably priced and gorgeous!

Good luck if you decide to join in the challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by  ~

Oh Barb this is so pretty! I love the soft colors with the grey! I have been on the fence about getting this stamp set, but now that I see your card, I must have it! Beautiful design too with the PTI word die! Love it to pieces! Thank you so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog today! ((Hugs)) :)
