We have a new sponsor, Avery Elle, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Candy Cane!  A randomly selected participant in the Candy Cane challenge will receive a $20 Avery Elle gift certificate, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I love using non-holiday images for Christmas cards.  I've been a big fan of using a charcoal ink for sentiments when you don't want them to steal the show.


cardstock:  recollections  stamps:  avery elle/joy to the world, petals and stems  ink:  fresh ink red currant/charcoal  other:  solid white divine twine, avery elle circle die, stampin' up embossing folder

  29. Dear Amy...you really inspired me
    and I made a CASE ing card with your card as my inspiration..
    I love the embossing paper in white and all white on your card..really clean and feel warm looking at your white card...

    but if I made my card also all in white it can be I am a COPYcat :) LOL
    also I confess: I copy only the embossing the idea of the ornament and the hanging ornament thats all
    hope you can "forgive me" to IN LOVE with your card in this post..
    I will post my card and will give you then the Link :)
    Hugs, Monika
