noel...

This Clean & Simple #72 just screams Amy Butler:)

Here you go:

The Noel is actually felt...oh how I love felt...

A totally clean & simple card...the best in my opinion because it translates to regular postage..LOL. You might not be able to tell but the thread that I used for the stitching is PINK! I love the contrast on the gorgeous Amy Butler patterned paper AND that was what was in/on the Janome:) {bonus ninja points!!}

Remember to stop by tomorrow...it is my day over on the 365 Cards blog.

  31. Love the bright colors and the white felt, Mamacita! This reminds me of a Christmas gift my aunt brought from Mexico when I was only 4 - it was a serape in beautiful bright colors....like this! Actually I think it might be the felt texture too...I'm pretty sure the serape was made of fake wool....lol
