Christmas Card Challenge

I decided to play along with Sparkle's Christmas card challenge this week. The challenge was NO COLORING. We could use different colored ink pads, but no markers, paints, chalks, etc. I thought that was just great! Not only did I use a minimal amount of supplies, but I was able to create this card in just minutes! It is a very simple card, one that I would probably give to my mail carrier or the school crossing guard. I used some of my home made Shimmer Spray to add a bit of sparkle. You might be able to see it, if you click on the image and enlarge it. My card was completely inspired by this card.




I am back from CHA...which was a blast! I'll have more on that with tomorrow's post.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate the visit.

Blessings~

That is sooo pretty --and I love that there was no coloring involved! Looks like a great choice for mass-producing too! Soft and pretty! tfs
