World Card Making Day!




Happy World Card Making Day to all you crafters out there! I knew I wanted to save Dawn's colour challenge for today. Whenever I'm in a slump, her colour challenges are always the perfect thing to pull me out of it! I combined her colour challenge #17 with Clean & Simple's challenge Fall to Layout # 62.

When I saw this pp today I knew it would be the perfect choice for the colour challenge! Plus I'm a huge sucker for snowflake paper so it was a no-brainer! I used whisper white for my base and matted a piece of creamy caramel (I don't have any kraft) on top. I used my scalloped edge punch from SU! to make the scalloped border in real red. The "be merry" sentiment is from SU!'s Warm Words stamp set. I inked the sentiment in real red onto whisper white and put that directly onto the satin chocolate chip ribbon that I tied into a bow. Gotta love those clean & simple sketches! I love how clean my cards look when I use them for inspiration!

thanks for stopping by!
