CASE-ing Christmas Challenge #6


I hope that your week has been decent, and has gone by quickly.  I'm excited that today's Friday, and I get to sleep in tomorrow and Sunday.  It seems that I like sleep, more and more, as I get older. lol  I'm also excited that our newest CASE-ing Christmas challenge is posted.  Today we are CASE-ing one of Ellen's cards.  Isn't it fabulous?  I really dig it.

And here is my card this week.

I chose the layout of Ellen's card, and changed the colors.  I hadn't used my distress inks much lately, so I thought this would be a great time to get back into them.  I also used embossing paste with a stencil, for the first time.  I am excited that it actually turned out as well as it did. lol  I have a feeling this will become another favorite new thing for me.  In general, I just really love this card.  I think I'll make a couple more, in different colors.  I'm going to submit my card for the following challenges.

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge: Anything Goes
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long: Anything Goes
Completely Christmas Challenge #48: Anything Goes With A Twist (square or rectangle cards)
Winter Wonderland: KISS (Keep It Sweet & Simple)

I do hope you'll head over to the challenge blog to see the other wonderful cards posted today.  Maybe you'll be inspired, and play along this week.

Have a great day!
