Challenge #8 (03-16-09)

This week's challenge was to "Create a card by incorporating a scenery design using designer papers." Here were her examples : Cut an image out from your designer paper like a Christmas tree and you can add that as your background, punch squares with the designer paper to create Christmas presents by adding a ribbon, punch flowers with the designer paper to create a floral back ground.
Well I did not follow the challenge to the T this round.... but I love my card! I took strips of different papers for the background, I then cut the star shape from a matching pattern paper. Boughs of Holly was cut from the same papers! I did use a snowflake stamp for the background on the green. Stampin Up's eyelet punch and ribbon add the final touch!

We have two new Diva's we welcomed to the group Jodi of Inked Inspirations and Cathy of My Creative Space .
