Quick and Easy Christmas, Part 2

Hello!  I wanted to share another quick and easy Christmas card with you.
At Christmas Card Challenges, we are to be inspired by this picture:


Working with the colors from the inspiration pic, I made this with spare parts from my scrap box.  The flower was already stamped and assembled for another project a few years back.  It's Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Vogue.  The die cut is Elegant Flourishes by Sizzix/Tim Holtz.  This went together in a jiffy!

I've linked this card up to the monthly Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoast, and also the Ways To Use It challenge there, which is SPACE (filling in the space around your card with something 3D).

I just finished wrapping up my card for Thursday's new challenge at The Play Date Cafe.  I can't wait for you to see it!  It's just too darn cute, if I say so myself.  :o)

Thanks for popping by!

Colleen

Stamps:  sentiment - Time To Chill - MFP; Vintage Vogue - SU
Paper:  Garden Green - SU; white - PTI
Ink:  Real Red, Basic Black - SU
Other:  Big Shot; Elegant Flourishes die - Sizzix/Tim Holtz; bling

Sweet design, Col...I love when I can use up details from other projects, makes me feel like they did, in fact, have a purpose! Love the colors and those darling stamps, too!

Love how sweet this card is. The littler flower is just darling. You can probably get by with 44 cents to mail it too. Now that is a plus at Christmas time...lol
