Viva La Simple Christmas

I can hardly believe it's getting into November. What happened to the year? It sure seems to have flown by for me. How about you?

Stamps: Verve Ornamental Christmas
Paper: Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Ribbon, Nestabilities

I created this card for the Viva La Verve Nov01 Sketch with a Twist, which was a 1-2-3 twist. One embellishment (buttons or eyelets or ribbon, etc), two colors of cardstock (plus a neutral) and three stamps. I do feel a little like this was cheating since it's three stamps, but creates one image. Oh well - I love these awesome Ornamental Christmas stamps from Verve

And a very happy anniversary to Chelsey and K-Dawg!

  3. Oh, I love it here too!! Saw it in the Viva gallery :) I think 3 stamps to make one image is ingenious!! She didn't say 3 stamp sets either. I'm also contemplating using some dp because she only said 2 different colours of cardstock, not paper...is that cheating? LOL

  4. Great card! I love that ornament. Seeing you use all those great Verve stamps makes me want some too!

  5. So very very pretty. Love the intricate design. Beautiful.

  6. It's not cheating if it's beautiful. And simple is beautiful. Love your ornament.

  7. this is so elegant love it love cheryl xxx

  8. Love what you've done with this tricky sketch! Brilliant using the bow as the other circle. Well done!! I've been eying this set for some time and with Maureen's pressie of a gift cert. to Verve, I may just get this set. I owe you a thank you for your's to her as she is paying it forward and I was the lucky recipient!
