Believe in the Magic of...

...Christmas!

With Tuesday, it brings my posting day at Try Stampin' on Tuesday 
As well as a new sketch for you to try, Sketch #96, which you can see below.
 
 Here is my card I made inspired by the sketch...
I decided to curve the sentiment banner away from the card before attaching with the brads.

Also, a little oops turned into a good thing...
The dye from the Outdoor Denim paper transferred onto the white embossed snowflakes.
There was no way for me to remove the color, so I ended up rubbing the paper over the snowflakes.
It added just the right amount of color and I really love the way the card turned out.

I hope you like it too!

 
 Outdoor Denim and pattern paper both from my stash of old Close to My Heart papers
White cardstock was embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder - Snowflakes
Sentiment from My Favorite Things - Seasonal Sentiments, which you can find HERE
Small sentiment - "believe" from Close to My Heart inked with Outdoor Denim
Star was cut with Cricut cartridge "George and Basic Shapes", page 115 <star1> at 1-1/2" and 1"
For finishing touches I  added Outdoor Denim brads, ribbon and attached the star with a safety pin
 
 
The Design Team has some really wonderful cards that you can see HERE
