Sparkles Christmas Challenge

Getting closer to Christmas....I know, what happened to Christmas being months away.  This year has flown by and I wish I could put the breaks on.  The winds of Autumn are pushing us all to quickly into the Christmas Season.

We can thank Sparkles Christmas Challenge design team member Sandra for this month's challenge - Distress It.  My graphic is from Graphic45, and my paper is from a 2012 Authentique collection.  The dies are new Memory Box and Poppystamps.  I love how they cut out the corners.

Before I show you the inside of my card, I want to thank......


For gifting some lucky folk a chance to win.  For more on how you can play along....Check out the ins and outs of playing along with us as we head toward the holidays.  I'll be watching and I hope to see you there.  

Now on to the inside of my card.  It's a pop up card......(though you wouldn't know from this photo... The tiny little die cuts and the trees are from Poppystamps.  

Here's a little better look......My friend Mary Jane made a card using this layout and, well, imitation is the best compliment.  Right?  

Off I go for now.  I think I'll go and see what kind of trouble I can get into.....

Happy Crafting and Hugs,

  1. Gorgeous card, both inside and out, a really lovely vintage feel to it. I love those cut-out corners on the front, and the pop up inside is amazing

  2. Mary, A really fab card.
