I am back to share with you my card for Christmas Card Challenges this week.
If you are wanting to play along with us there aren't many rules. The only rules are that you card has to be Christmas or Holiday themed. You can play along with the challenge if you want, but you don't have to...however, who doesn't love a challenge to help spark some creativity thought?!
Here's this weeks challenge:
My card actually very quickly built itself. The main part of the card started as an ATC that I'm sending to the ladies that I trade with. (I had mentioned in a previous post that I would share them with you sometime soon, that is still on my list of to dos). I thought that it was perfect for a card front so added to it, and VOILA a card was born. I just love the simplicity of the card and how pretty it turned out when I added shimmery paper, and that ribbon!
Here's the front of the card...
Here's the side of the card...
