IT'S AN EXPLOSION IN REVERSE!

WOW!  Have you seen Squigglefly's Blogspot challenge today?!!!  Your challenge for the next 7 days is to:  Make a card or project that has a banner added to it  or use an image with a banner. I had a problem with the banner idea so just stamped some Christmas sentiments on some die cuts I have - I also sprayed the die cuts with some wonderful glimmer mist!
 I am really getting into the mood of Christmas using some of THE PAPER CUT's precut/prescored cards providing just that little dab of motion to make your recipient grin upon receipt!
I used PRAYING HANDS by artist Pamela Lehto from Squigglefly's newest releases.  I loved the way the bayberry leaves and fruit curled up around and immediately thought of a card which would delight an older friend we have.

Colors used are all from The Paper Cut:  Blush Print background and various mats of Gumdrop Green, Red Mirricard and Basis Green.  But again in my mad desire to get more Christmas cards created, I decided to just duplicate a 2nd one with a different NEW image from Squigglefly !   This image is WINTER BIRDS by image artist Carmen Gamble.

  Only 1 month to  Christmas Day - come join us at Squigglefly's Challenge Blog and enter a card using a Squigglefly image to be eligible to win a free stampset in the random drawing on Dec. 1!
