The Card Concept Challenge #63

Hello! I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Our son came into town, which was fabulous! Of course, I ate entirely too much food!!! That is why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday!!! haha!!

Now it is time for my second favorite holiday...Christmas!!!!

Our current challenge here at the
CARD CONCEPT is perfect for this time of year!

This will be our last challenge for awhile! CARD CONCEPT is going to be taking a Christmas break, so we may spend some quality time getting ready for this beautiful season with our friends and loved ones!

I was inspired by the JOY and the greenery in the inspiration photo! I knew right away that I wanted to use my new Tim Holtz Ephemera Pack-Festive.

Most of this card was made with Tim Holtz Christmas products. If you look at the upper right corner, you can see where I used a TH stencil and embossing paste for the words-Joy and Believe.  There were two poinsettias in the ephemera pack. I glued one in place and then fussy cut the second and adhered it to the first one for some dimension.

That pretty reindeer came from TARGET!!! They had some fun Christmas items at the front of the store for cards and scrap booking, etc! Check it out!

I hope we have inspired you to join us here at 
And we hope everyone has a blessed Holiday season!

Remember...the team is divided into the different styles and each designer explains how they were inspired by the challenge!  So come and join us and try your hand at a brand new "style" of card making OR work in your comfort zone! It is totally up to you!
