Paper Issues' new challenge is up!

Paper Issues Blog Design

Holiday Happy!

Our Super Sponsor is Reminisce!

Check out the Prize...there are 2 up for grabs!


Make sure you pop over to the Paper Issues blog for all the deets!

Here's my Holiday Happy:


This is a multi-tasking card....I needed a wee bit of inspiration so when I saw over on A Blog Named Hero that their current challenge is



...I knew I wanted to play.

Here's my inspiration:


I was inspired by

1.  tone-on-tone stamping
{can you see the Hero Arts Circle Lace in my revived card?}

2.  Silhouette image
{I'm a big fan of the silhouette images...this time around I heat embossed the Hero Arts Musical Walk image}

3.  Green...still my fav color
{THEN:  Stampin' Up Wild Wasbi NOW: PTI New Leaf}

4. Current Preferred Style:  tag

5.  Pretty sure I should get bonus points for using non-holiday themed stamps to create a holiday card:)  The sentiment is from the now retired EAD Designs.

I'm also going to be sending this one over to Vera for her Caring Hearts Card Drive:
