Addicted to Stamps and More #108

Its time for our 'Holiday' challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. You can create a project using any Holiday you want. I have opted for Christmas and did use a few other challenges to help inspire me to create this card:


This week at Addicted to Stamps and More we are being sponsored by Rick St.Dennis and we are lucky enough to have one of their DT joining us today-welcome Karen. There are some fab images in their store so please do visit them and take a look. As always our DT have come up with some wonderful projects to inspire you-take a look here.

Now for my inspiration-the picture at Festive Friday gave me the idea for the snowy wreath. I went with a one layer card so I could enter the 'Foliage OLC' challenge at Less is More and finally I was unsure about using a black sentiment but saw the 'Tic Tac Toe' challenge at CAS-ual Fridays and one of the lines is 'Black, White and Sequins'. This gave me the idea of tying in the black sentiment with one single black sequin-this seemed to balance it to my eye plus the sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays so an added benefit!

This card came together really quickly thanks to all these pieces of inspiration fitting nicely together in my little brain! Isn't it great when this happens?

I hope you join us at Addicted to Stamps and More x

  13. This is a lovely card, although no leaves are apparent, wreaths are usually created from foliage, so I guess we have a link there!
    Love the white on the kraft base!
    Thanks so much
