Bloggers' Challenge -- Septemer 7

This week's challenge was fun and so very much easier than the last few weeks! We were to copy the card design from Page 12 of the Holiday Mini catalog. The most difficult part was trying to decide if I wanted to stamp backgrounds or use background papers!! As you can see, I've decided to use the fabulous new Wintergreen Designer Paper...which is really re-colored from last year's Holiday Mini. Loved it last year, but like it even better now! Lots of greens in these papers: Sage Shadow, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke. Now, without the help of the Designer Paper, I'm not sure I would have put together that combo, but it's fun and a bit different. Throw in some of the new crystal brads and my new favorite punch....the Scallop Punch (I still had it out from last week's Challenge!)....and it was a fast card to make. ...and, yes, I seem to be still in the Christmas spirit! (It's coming, you know!!)
Please take some time to visit some of the other Blogs listed to the left....a few new ones have been added. It's really so much fun to hop around and see how differently we all interpret a design!
Stamps: Canvas, Punch Pals, Party Punch (Hostess, Level 1)
Inks: Always Artichoke
CS: Sage Shadow, Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Certainly Celery
