Christmas Waves a Magic Wand...

...and Viola! I made a Christmas card! Fun and easy card to make using Stampin' Up! Lovely As a Tree set. This is the first time I used the single pine tree and I really like it with the Mojo Monday sketch. I embossed the DP, used Cherry Cobbler for pop and a touch of gold bling.






Now for the challenges I am entering this card in...

Little Red Wagon to use Red
The Wild Orchid to use Red, Green, Gold to make a classic Christmas card.
Speedy the Cat's Friend Challenge to paper pierce, I did, look close at the natural ivory CS
Mojo Monday Sketch - uhm, the sketch!
Treehouse Stamp Challenge to use Old Olive, Ivory and can use one more color
Catch A Bug Challenge and Incy Wincy Challenge are both 'Any Thing Goes'
And the challenge that started it all this week is 365 Cards, Day 248, Ad Inspired with my DD, Kim, as the DT
and she chose this picture for our inspiration:
designer dogs

Thanks for stopping by and with any luck I might make another card this week-end!
