Festive Friday Guest Designer

Last week I got an email from Ardyth, who runs the Festive Friday Christmas challenge asking me if I'd like to be a guest designer for this new challenge.  Of course, I said yes!  As you all know, I love FF and I love making Christmas cards.  How could I say no?  :-). So, the inspiration picture is fabulous as usual and has so many possibilities.  Check it out...

Great, isn't it?  Now, take a look at what I came up with...

I stamped my flourish (Stampendous) with white StazOn on a kraft card base then added red gingham  bow.  I then adhered a couple of pine branches and some berries.  Lastly, I added two tiny jingle bells.  I love this card but it will definitely be given to someone that I don't have to mail to as it is rather bulky.  LOL.

I do hope that you will all join in on the fun at Festive Friday and get started on those Christmas cards.  You need to check out the DT's work too as it is totally fabulous, as usual!  They are one talented group!  I'm so thankful and honored they asked me to join them for this challenge.  :-)

I'm linking up to the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More - it's their "holiday" challenge.
The Paper Players - make a CAS card with the option of using silver or gold.  My jingle bells are gold.
Christmas Cards All Year Round - use embellishments.

Thanks so much for dropping by today.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!
