'Tis the Season

Hiya! When I said on my last post I was starting 2014 Christmas cards, I didn't actually mean I was going to be making them all now! But then I was inspired by a couple of challenges and I've made this card. I saw this weeks Less is More challenge of Round and Round and imagined a circle within a circle, nothing else was coming though. Then today I saw the new Merry Monday challenge of Mistletoe and 'ding!' ;-) I've used this weeks Dynamic Duos colours again, although this time with Real Red as my second colour. Thanks for looking!


Supplies;
Dies - Circle Nestabilities & CC Designs 'Mistletoe'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Real Red', 'Garden Green' & 'Naturals White'
Ink - Stampin' Up 'Real Red' & 'Garden Green'
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink 'Think Big Favourites #21'
Other - Natural twine & adhesive pearls

Wow--you are rocking the Green+ challenge this week, Beth! This card is awesome! Love the window and the mistletoe, subtly suggested by the little pearls. You should make a dozen of these! Thanks for sharing this card with the Dynamic Duos, too (2!).

I love the window. I accessed this from Merry Monday, but thought it looked familiar. Realized it was the win over at Dynamic! Well deserved.
