Thinking of You at Christmas

Hi, everyone! Hope all is well.

Today, I have a Jingle-Belles-Stars-and/or-Stripes-inspired card to share.

Chatterbox stash vellum; Stampin' Up neutral and Distress Ink core papers; stash cardstock
Sue Wilson Creative Expressions die
Hero Arts sentiment, heat embossed in SU copper powder
SU hardwood background stamp in DI vintage photo; SU linen thread
wreath embellishments: SU owl builder and cupcake punches; ??? star corner rounder punch
adhesives: Scotch ATG; foam backing; Zig 2-way glue pen; Zots glue dot; Miracle tape
The background paper is actually a yummy vellum I've had forever. Know those papers and vellums that you just can't pass up but never use. Yep, this is one of those. So glad I finally found a good use for it. Right before posting, I realized the front panel was way too plain and had the inspiration to stamp the hardwood pattern.

It looks like Simon Says has another Anything Goes Challenge going on. So, I'm also going to link this up there.

Parting Thoughts

Our Words 2 Craft By love-inspired challenge is still going strong. Marty made a lovely wedding project for mid-challenge reminder. We'd love for you to stop by and play along.

That's it for tonight. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
